St Mary’s
Church
Pipe Organ
rededicated
On the 22nd April 2017, St Mary’s
Church held a service for the
rededication of the pipe organ. After 2
1/2 years of fundraising through
summer concerts, auctions and recitals,
Lorraine Eldridge, organist at St
Mary’s, was able to raise an astonishing
£37,000 to go towards rebuilding of the
church’s organ. The church was packed
at the celebratory evensong, with the
Horatio Singers being accompanied by
the newly rebuilt organ. Prayers and
readings were undertaken by young
members of the St Mary’s choir, as well
as other members of the choir preparing
delicious food for the end of the service.
The evening was a moving and
memorable occasion for all, and special
thanks must go out to Lorraine Eldridge
for organising the event.

Blossom and Yarn
spectacular knitting and
flower festival returns
Following the huge success of the 2015
Blossom and Yarn event in six medieval
churches in rural Norfolk, the 2017 event
promises to be even more exciting.
Held over 4 days from Friday 7th July, each of
the 6 churches in the Wayland parish group
will be adorned with knitted displays
complimented with flowers and foliage.
Artistic Director, Lois Gill, a celebrated
craftswomen and RHS Chelsea Flower show, 3
times medallist is leading a team of
enthusiastic knitters, gardeners and florists to
create a festival around the theme of Creation.
Each church will have a different theme from
an undersea world to the Garden of Eden.
Work is already well underway, Percy the
Peacock and assorted parrots and monkeys
have already been created from recycled
knitted squares from the previous festival and
new patterns that Lois and her team have
devised.
Once again the aim of the festival is to bring
the 6 parishes together and create a sense of
community whilst having fun, and the funds
raised will help ensure that the ancient historic
churches remain at the heart of the life and
landscape of these six rural Norfolk villages.
