Archbishop shares in 'stirring vision for Port and town'



The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, has today visited the Port of Dover to see the transformation taking place at one of the UK's key international gateways.

Archbishop Welby, accompanied by the Bishop of Dover (The Rt Revd Trevor Willmott), met the Port’s Chairman (George Jenkins) and Chief Executive (Tim Waggott).

During the visit, Archbishop Welby, the head of the 85 million strong international Anglican Communion, toured the Port with local chaplains to see for himself the massive investment being made to ensure the Port can provide the 13 million customers who use Europe’s busiest international ferry port each year with the very best customer service, and meeting the dedicated professional team who deliver that service.

Tim Waggott, said: “We were all delighted and honoured to welcome Archbishop Justin to the Port and to show him how we are all working together to transform the Port by serving our customers and community in the best way we can.”

The Archbishop also met with the independent chairmen and vice-chairmen of the Port’s two key consultation bodies – the Port & Community Forum and Port Users Group - witnessing the unifying effects of the shared vision being developed for the future development of the Port and its contribution to the local community.

Archbishop Welby, on leaving the Port, said he was: “very grateful for generous time from busy people, and a stirring vision for port and town.”
