Popped into St Peter’s Church in Copdock – celebrating their 800th year – for a bit of campanology – just as well it wasn’t me ringing the bells as they are 400 years old. To celebrate they had a floral display inside and cream tea stall outside. Very surreal, fighting a huge piece of strawberry flan whilst being serenaded by the church bells.
We are extremely lucky to have enough footpaths in a relatively small area to create a ‘fest’ in the first place. On Sunday I spent a couple of hours in Copdock & Washbrook trying to find pictures of various animals on signposts! What a lovely day it was too. However the turnout was pretty disappointing – just a dozen souls including a couple of children who ‘dragged’ their mum round the whole circuit in order to win the England football and supporters’ pack.
Interestingly the Parish produce a ‘Welcome Pack’ for new people to the parish. Amongst the items in it is a footpath map and book – if you have a half day to spend you could try to get round all of the paths – the animal pictures have been left on the sign posts.
