Here is the message from Rev Dr Paul Edmondson that Sir Stanley Wells read out to us before his interesting talk in Stratford this August.
“Hello and greetings to all of you. Your conference this time coincides with my walking the Shakespeare Way (146 miles from the Birthplace to the Globe), and I’m sorry I can’t be with you all. Please think of me over the rolling hills from Woodstock to Oxford today, and I’ll be thinking fondly of you. And I’m reading a Shakespeare Sonnet a mile (but there’ll be 8 left over to read with a glass of something sparkling in London). Always honoured to be among your Honorary Fellows Paul Edmondson.”
