Cygnet Names Announced

20th - 27th May

🦢 Cygnet Names Announcement! 🦢


The annual cygnet-naming competition results were announced this afternoon at the Palace.

There were many hundreds of entries this year, and some names were suggested repeatedly, so thank you all for your suggestions.

The names picked were:

Peter - for Bishop Peter who is retiring this week

Angel – after Sergeant Angel in Hot Fuzz and also for the spiritual connection

Liberty – after the release back to freedom post lockdown, and The Liberty street in Wells

Hitch – because one always wants a lift on Mum’s back!
