Rogation Walk

The ancient English practice of "Beating the Bounds" during Rogationtide early in May was a walk by villagers around the boundaries of their parish to mark them out.  Let's honour the tradition in an enjoyable way by going for a walk together within the parish.  Let's meet up at 10,00am on Bank Holiday Monday 4th May outside Holy Trinity Church for about a two-hour walk.  Bring stout shoes, children and dogs.

Youth Group

For the past few weeks a small group of young people aged year 8 and upwards have been meeting at Holy Trinity Church from 5pm to 6pm.  These meetings have been well led by Pat Allen and Mark Hamblett.  If you are interested in joining the group, why not come along on a Sunday evening?  Check with Jason Hillis (01524 824001) for details of meetings.
