A new vicar has been installed in the district - only the eleventh to serve a village church since it was established in the 1850s.

The Rev Nick Weir was greeted by a packed congregation in Holy Trinity Church, Frogmore, when he was installed in a ceremony led by the Bishop of Hertford, the Rt Rev Michael Beasley.

Over 200 members of the local community and friends from across the UK were at the ceremony to welcome Dr Weir, who previously worked as a curate in a curch in Basingstoke.

He has moved to Frogmore with his wife Cherry and two young sons.

Speaking after the service, Dr Weir commented: “It’s great to finally start at Holy Trinity and get to know the church and the wider community. The role of any church is to be a beacon of light in an increasingly challenging world and I’m looking forward to helping Holy Trinity share the good news of Jesus in the coming years.”

Guests of honour at the service were Deputy Mayor of St Albans, Cllr Gill Clark, and chairman of St Stephen parish council, Cllr Michael Freeman.
