Ken, Trevor, and Elizabeth the Second

Ken Dove (left) and Trevor Megson outside the Minster after the Royal Maundy ServiceOn Maundy Thursday 2012 the traditional Royal Maundy Service took place at York Minster, and amongst the men and women who received the Maundy Money from Her Majesty The Queen were two St Luke's stalwarts.

To mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee year the 86 men and 86 women receiving the Royal Maundy included representatives of all the countries of the United Kingdom and all the dioceses of the Church of England - and Ken Dove and Trevor Megson (Helen Gant's dad). Ken and Trevor are pictured outside the Minster after the service.

The Queen presented Trevor and Ken each with a red purse containing a £5 coin commemorating the Diamond Jubilee, and a 50p coin, and a white purse containing uniquely minted Maundy Money. This takes the form of silver one, two, three and four penny pieces, the sum of which equals the number of years the Monarch has years of age. This year there are 86 pennies worth distributed. All the coins are newly minted this year.
