Ramble & Barbecue
The August event took place from Home Farm, by kind invitation of the Lawrence family. 17 walkers checked out more of the history of Allensmore Court before crossing the railway line safely and looking back over Allensmore. More history was discussed as we passed the old cottage at Coedmore and returned for a 5.00pm barbecue. The rain threatened and tried to spoil the party, but nobody was disturbed by a damp dessert. As the sun returned and the children entertained visitors, more of the local juice was consumed. Many thanks to everyone for their help and support – £259 was raised towards the upkeep of St Andrew’s Church.
The September Ramble & Barbecue starts at Lower Mawfield Courtyard, HR2 9BQ on Saturday 7th September at 3.00pm. Please join us for the walk and/or the refreshments at 5.00pm.
A quarter peal was rung on the bells at St Andrew’s Church during “Quarter Peal” fortnight. The quarter peal was successfully completed on Wednesday 31st July and was dedicated to the memory of Val Price.

Kind Regards Carol
