Service of Thanksgiving and Celebration to mark the 175th anniversary of Durham Constabulary

Durham Cathedral, 2.30pm Saturday 16th May

On Saturday, 16th May a service will be held at the Cathedral as part of the ‘Summer of Celebration’ to mark the 175th anniversary of the force. Starting at 2.30pm and expected to last around an hour, the service will include a sermon from the Bishop of Durham, Paul Butler and musical contributions from both the Durham Constabulary Band and the Choir.

Deputy Chief Constable Michael Banks will also be making a short address at what will be one of his last official engagements before he retires.

During the service there will also be a collection, with part of the proceeds going towards the Police Treatment Centres. The service is suitable for everyone, regardless of personal faiths or beliefs and it is hoped as many of you as possible can attend. Family and friends are of course welcome.

If you are going to the service, please take your seats by 2.15pm to ensure the service can start on time.
