The Brass Band concert held on 31st July proved to be very successful. We enjoyed a good attendance, so much so that it became very warm in church, not a problem that we usually have to contend with. The band played music ranging from the Beatles back to the First World War. David Hardy sang some solo verses after which the audience joined in. The Second World War songs encouraged the audience to sing enthusiastically and the evening was finished off with a rousing rendition of Jerusalem.
First World War A vigil was held on Sunday evening and an open prayer session on Monday morning. This was supported by a display depicting local involvement - photos below:-
