Former Chair of WATCH, Christina Rees received her CBE at Buckingham Palace from Prince Charles last month. She was awarded the CBE in recognition of her services to the Church of England.

Hilary Cotton, Chair of WATCH commented; ‘The award of a CBE to Christina is a great affirmation of her sustained work on behalf of all women in the Church of England, on General Synod and as Chair of WATCH from its beginning until 2010. Her new venture, as Dean of Little Gidding, will be a wonderful new opportunity for her to use her many gifts to the full. We wish her well.’
