The Hertfordshire Lieutenancy were delighted to attend the Evensong at St Albans Cathedral on Sunday 22nd May 2022 to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The event was attended by the Lord-Lieutenant of Hertfordshire Mr Robert Voss CBE CStJ, the Vice Lord-Lieutenant of Hertfordshire, Richard Beazley and also the High Sheriff of Hertfordshire, Sally Burton DL.

The Very Reverend Jo Kelly-Moore, Dean of St Albans and The Right Reverend Dr Alan Smith, Bishop of St Albans welcomed hundreds of Hertfordshire residents to the thanksgiving service. The Evensong featured wonderful music and celebratory hymns that perfectly reflected the Queen’s reign over the last 70 years.

Hertfordshire Youth United were very proud to have representatives from all of the eight uniformed youth organisations walking in the procession, carrying their flags and banners to the front of the nave at the beginning of the service.
