The future Archbishop of Canterbury enjoyed a tour of Darlington’s Cummins engineering plant as he visits the town to celebrate the Foundation for Jobs scheme.

The Northern Echo:

The Right Reverend Justin Welby spoke to Darlington schoolchildren involved in the scheme which helps local youths into employment, before being given a guided tour around the Cummins factory floor to learn more about the company and its involvement in Foundation for Jobs.

Afterwards he addressed visitors to the Teesside University Darlington campus and told them it was “a great privilege” to be patron of the Foundation for Jobs.

The Northern Echo:

He is now back in The Northern Echo offices to resume his guest editorship of tomorrow’s edition of the newspaper.

Follow the Bishop of Durham's day as guest editor of The Northern Echo live.

His schedule is built around the Foundation for Jobs project which was launched in Darlington a year ago to help boost youth unemployment by promoting apprenticeships, internships and links between schools and employers.

His first appointment will be to visit Cummins, which has been a key supporter of the Foundation for Jobs, and meet local schoolchildren being given an insight into the world of engineering.

The bishop will then go to Teesside University's Darlington campus to meet other business leaders who have supported the campaign and hear about the progress made so far.

After chairing the paper's noon news conference, the bishop will formally launch Bike Stop, an innovative social enterprise which helps people who are homeless, or facing other difficulties, learn new skills and get back into work by recycling old bikes.

The bishop will then chair the second news conference of the day, make decisions about how the paper will look, and write the editorial comment.

We will be reporting live throughout the day.

I am not happy that a person of faith is editing my daily newspaper. I look forward to an impartial comment on the regions events. Not one skewed by the left wing infiltrated CofE !
I hope this never happens again as it is a disgrace.

You're the disgrace MSG, just take a look at yourself. Do you really think the Bishop will be sprinkling his religious fairy dust over each and every story in your daily newspaper? Do you really think that? Are you insane MSG? Are you?

No i am not insane, perhaps you are believing in all the religious poppycock!
I prefer elected people to comment on lifes important matters!!!.
The CofE is in tatters at the moment and has lost the moral high ground.
I renounce my CofE baptism.

Hopefully he'll take the opportunity to explain why he sanctioned the closure and sale of St Laurence's (coincidentally or not) in MSG, based upon misrepresented and escalated repair costs which, when up for sale, have - er - miraculously - reduced to a fraction. Until such time as he satisfactorily and accurately answers the questions of the parishioners and local community I don't think they care much for any view that he may express, in this publication or otherwise.
