northernvicarwalks – November 2021

This was the month we finally managed to restart our Toddler Group, and that was a huge pleasure. Remembrance Sunday was busy too – I felt mixed emotions, pleased that the place was full, but worried about the number of people who were there.

I managed two train trips – a day to Hull and a morning up the Joint Line.

An almost-daily Facebook Ramble.

We had two lovely days out. Sadly Bourneville church was locked, though the bookshop was open.

Kenilworth church was open, but there was a wedding in progress (how dare they be busy when northernvicar arrives?). A nice bookshop, plus a charity bookshop and other charity shops selling books. Julie visited all of them – indeed I think she looked at every single book.

The highlight of the month was a 60th birthday party for Julie. We held it in the wonderful Gosforth Theatre in Newcastle, and had 50 friends there. There was enough space that it all felt safe, and a good time was had by all.

Congratulations to my former congregation at Milbourne who have finally manage to get a loo. I started the process, but was unable to carry it through. The one they have is a very green composting loo. Well done!

Bury St Edmunds gained a Christmas attraction – I don’t know who took this photo, but it made me smile.

We ended the month with snow – enough to delay our Advent Procession by a week. Sara Murfin took this photo of St Matthew’s.
