Abbey Fete

Today was the Abbey Fete and the nave was turned over to its medieval use as a market place. In the picture, the Town Crier has just called for silence to introduce the Vicar who is introducing the Town Mayor who opened the fete. They are stood in front of the Rood Screen which separates the "Church" from the "Nave".

The view down the nave from the clerestory was spectacular as always and it was great to see the Abbey come to life as a centre for the community it serves in this way. We are fortunate indeed to have such a versatile space and such a beautiful one.

The day has been a great success and the hard work and effort everyone put into it has made a huge contribution to the annual income we need to generate to keep ourselves afloat financially.
