Gallipoli Service

Yesterday ( Sunday 27th April ) I attended the Gallipoli Day Service at Bury Parish Church. The Rector gave an excellent unscripted sermon explaining how the events of nearly 100 years ago ( 2015 will be the centenary of the ill-fated campaign ) contribute to what makes Bury Bury.

In the afternoon I called in at a couple of events being held locally. Firstly, the Wildflower Seed Sowing Day organised by The Affetside Link a small community group who do so much to keep the community spirit alive in the small village despite the closure of their primary school a few years ago. They are re-developing a wildflower area on the village green. Secondly, I called in at the Vintage Extravaganza organised by and held at Tottington High School. Lots of vintage vehicles on display some of which I had passed on my way into Bury for the Gallipoli Day service earlier in the day as they were making there way up to the School.
