We have decided to meet up and reach out to others (at a social distance of course) so our annual Picnic Sale is on. Homemade pies, pasties, traybakes and cakes will be on sale at Newbiggin Farm, Waberthwaite on Saturday 29th. Sunday 30th and Monday 31st of August. All proceeds will go to St John's Church for essential work on the church building. You'll find Newbiggin Farm about a mile from Waberthwaite towards the viaduct. Turn off the A495 at the school, and look out for the signs. W eall deserve a treat, so do come along whether you're on holiday or not!
Heritage Weekend and Ride and Stride
Saturday 12 September 2020, Sunday 13 September 2020 at 10:30 a.m. for 6h
Heritage Open Weekends and Ride and Stride have been national events for many years and the organisers of the Heritage Weekend have just announced that the event will take place this year. At this stage St John's and St Peter's Drigg are planning to be open on limited days over the first weekend. We are being encouraged to produce some digital material to enable those who can't visit to find out about what is special about them. So watch this space nearer the time for more details. We hope to welcome you in person, possibly riding or striding, but who knows what interactive skills we may have learnt over the last weeks!
