Plough Sunday Service

29th January 2017

This year’s Plough service was held in Thorrington Red Lion pub.

The service was taken by Rev Hart with thirty two people attending. Hymns were sung in the pub, with everyone going outside afterwards to the see the plough blessed for the year ahead. Many stayed for a meal afterward.

To mark the service there was also a quarter peal rung at the church between 11.00 am – 12.00 pm.

Thanks go to Mr Jinks for bringing the plough along and to the Red Lion pub.
