Brooke News – November 2016

The family of Peter Jones attended St Peter on 6th August for the interment of his ashes; Peter was born at Brooke where his parents were farmers for many years as he himself was too. On 23rd August Mary showed a party from Launde Abbey around St Peter who were studying church architecture.

A happy and joyful Harvest Festival service took place at St Peter on 18th September and the collection, amounting to £167, will be donated to Water Aid. The church, as usual was a riot of colour due to the beautiful floral displays artistically arranged by Brooke’s ladies. A full congregation enjoyed tasty refreshments and drinks after the service and thanks go to all who provided them and arranged the flowers.

Our Harvest service reminds me of a special service held at Brooke on Thursday 4th September 1879 to celebrate the official re-opening of St Peter after major restoration work begun in the spring of 1878. Click here for more details.
