Rev Fritha Middlemiss of Berwick was one of the first women to be ordained as priests in the Church of England back in 1994.

She was in London last Saturday to mark the twentieth anniversary of the event.

After a march from Westminster Abbey, more than 700 of the women from 1994 were photographed on the steps of St Paul’s Cathedral with the Archbishop of Canterbury, then took part in a service of celebration in a packed cathedral.
