700th Church Anniversary


Bawdrip celebrates in style

St Michael and All Angels Church in Bawdrip marked its 700th anniversary with a highly successful weekend on July 7th and 8th 2012.  A tremendous collection of photographs and memorabilia were exhibited in the Church showing the history of the Church and village. The Church demonstrated its place at the heart of the village as countless visitors shared stories and memories of the past.

Meanwhile on the Village Green cream teas and cakes were consumed and bric-a-brac and books purchased. Saturday saw dreadful weather but on Sunday the sun blazed down and  large crowds came. The highlight of the afternoon was a concert by a 22 strong German accordion orchestra the Diemelspatzen.  The weekend was a fitting reward for some meticulous preparation and hours of hard work  by a team of dedicated  volunteers.
