It is spring time at Chadkirk

Yes. Despite the wintry weather, our spring programme of activities at Chadkirk has begun.

While the blizzards fresh from the Baltic kept some people at home, as soon as the weather eased just enough for local folk to get out and about, a walk to Chadkirk Chapel allowed people to experience just the right balance of bracing and comfort.

Strolling through sub-zero temperatures took care of the bracing part. In Chadkirk Chapel, Friends of Chadkirk took care of the comfort. Hot drinks were available, but it was the extra treat of tray bakes that seemed to nourish and keep the chill at bay. As people enjoyed the cakes, they were entertained by our annual showing of the story of St. Chad. Over the hours when the chapel was open, there were 3 showings of the film and our cakes were sold out by the end of the afternoon.

Cakes sales raised £120. And just in case you need to feel that the cakes were more than a foodie treat, by eating the cakes you were supporting the upkeep of Chadkirk. The money raised goes into the funds which the Friends of Chadkirk use to maintain and enhance Chadkirk Chapel, the Walled Garden and the footpaths (among other things).  A bracing walk, a comforting cake and supporting a much loved part of our local landscape. An afternoon well spent.

Future opportunities to take part in events at Chadkirk this spring are planned for the Easter weekend.

Easter Monday: Easter Egg Hunt (open to under 10 yrs)

The next Friends of Chadkirk meeting is Thursday 10th May at 1pm in Chadkirk Chapel.

 

Sunday 4th March : St Chad’s Day

Looking to get out and about now that the weather has eased and the roads are clear? A stroll around Chadkirk and a visit to the Chapel might be just the thing.

We are hosting our annual St Chad’s Day event. There’s a presentation DVD on the life of St Chad.

The presentation starts at 2pm. Tray bakes for sale. Drinks from the kiosk.
