Saturday 14th August was a fine warm day, something of a rarity in August this year!  Coffee and Cakes at Congham returned along with additional stalls outside in a lovely marquee kindly lent by Graham Morris.  Lots of fresh air, friendship and delicious cake!

Thank you to the donors of prizes for the raffle, everyone who made cakes and donated plants, home produce, books and bric a brac. Items from the latter two categories which did not find new homes on the day have since been passed on to Cancer Research UK  and the Norfolk Hospice shop who were very pleased to receive them.

Many thanks also to everyone who came along to support the event.  An amazing total of £550 was raised for Congham church. We hope to hold another event soon.

CHURCH HISTORY

OUR RECTORS AT GRIMSTON 

A NEW HISTORY OF GRIMSTON'S RECTORS FROM 1242 - 1975.

Steph Hall's new history can be read here. on St Botolph's History pages.

 

Our Churches stretch back hundreds of years and so, of course, does the list of clergymen who have served here.

Stephanie Hall has wonderfully researched the histories of these priests from the middle ages in 1242 when Walter de Thorp served here and  right up to 1975 when it was the Revd. Esdaile Lennox Barnes.
