Family Fun Mornings at Hemblington Church

Children of all ages are invited to join in a morning of games and crafts at Hemblington Church on Tuesday 1st and Thursday 3rd August from 10 am until 12 noon.

We plan to create a sky filled with angels to display in the church, make finger puppets, design flying objects (and compete to see which flies best), play giant Jenga, solve puzzles, decorate biscuits, eat cake and generally have a good time. Immediately following the Thursday session there will be a barbecue lunch.

Please note that children attending this event must be accompanied by an adult. There is no charge for the event.

Late Summer Colour in the Garden

Our Open Garden this year at the Bird in Hand will be on Sunday 13th August from 2 pm at 80, Mill Road, Blofield Heath, NR13 4QS. Entrance fee is £2.50 for adults and free for your children. All the proceeds are equally divided between Heathland Community Centre and Hemblington Church.

There will be delicious homemade cakes & teas, a raffle, cake stall, a tombola and a book & White Elephant stall. Pimms, wine and Woodfordes Ales Will be served from the ‘Cellar’ and Blofield Bowls Club will organise the target bowls competition. As an additional attraction this year ‘NORFOLK SHARP’ will be on site so bring all those gardening tools you need sharpened and leave them whilst you go off and enjoy the garden and all the other delights available. Best of all there will be loads of plants for sale, but, be warned, these do go rather quickly.

We hope for good weather and look forward to seeing you all. Please note we can only allow guide dogs in the garden.

The next Make and Mardle will be on Thursday 24th August from 10 am to 12 noon at Hemblington Church. As usual there will be coffee, cake, chat and craft (optional); all are welcome. Call 270360 for more information.

Visit by the Bure Valley Conservation Group

On Wednesday 26th April members of the Bure Valley Conservation Group visited Hemblington Church for a talk about the history and architecture of the church. After refreshments the group braved the cold winds to undertake the first wild plant survey of the year, noting some 46 plants and seeing or hearing 13 different species of birds. This event was organised by the Friends of All Saints Hemblington. Thanks to David Bryant for this photo of the event. Click on the photo to see a larger version.
