A Guide leader from Holt will be playing a special role in the Queen’s Coronation service today.
The Rev Jenny Pathmarajah, a volunteer with 1st Thorpe Marriott Guides and 1st Taverham Senior Section, will be carrying the anointing oil and handing it to the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.
Mrs Pathmarajah will be the only representative of British Girlguiding in the procession at Westminster Abbey, London.
She was chosen to take part in the special occasion because she is of Christian faith and a Queen’s Guide - the highest award given out in Girlguiding.
The main service will be attended by the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and other members of the royal family.
Mrs Pathmarajah, 30, is the current probationary minister for Holt Methodist Church but will be ordained in London on July 7.
