We shall meet at the gate to the church field at 3pm before walking through the village across to the Roman road, down to the river bank and back to the village via the fields to the church.
Sheila Leadbeater has kindly agreed to talk us through the village as we walk. As we walk past the houses Sheila tells us the history of the buildings which provides a fascinating and insightful picture of Newton Kyme and its community through the ages. From Roman forts to World War II bombers Newton Kyme has a story to be told – and Sheila does is brilliantly.
We had a glorious afternoon last year when we did this event. After lifting push chairs over fences, encouraging the little ones to keep walking through grass that was taller than them and herding the older ones who were too busy chatting back to church we were all ready for the restorative cup of tea waiting for us, not to mention the scrumptious cakes and scones. It was a really happy afternoon.
Please come along – we are going to suggest a contribution of £3.50 for the tea – all funds to St Andrew’s Church.
