Holiday Church Outdoors

for 1 hour

🦋 Holiday Church:

We will meet at the carpark near Ribchester park at 4pm on Sunday 28th July. There will be a walk (approximately 2 miles including stiles), a butterfly count and lots of other counting along the route.
Please bring a picnic, waterproofs and wear walking shoes.
We will picnic outside if it’s fine or inside the church if it’s raining.
If anyone prefers not to do the walk, you can park at the Roman museum and join us with your picnic at approximately 5.30pm.
Just like last year, this is a wonderful opportunity for all ages to enjoy our beautiful countryside and have fun and fellowship together! 🦋

The Summer Afternoon Tea Party on the 15th June will mark the start of our Open Garden Month which will end on Saturday 13th July.
