Events List

Due to the ongoing issues with the Events Calendar section of the site, we’ve created this page which isn’t as nice as the What’s On section but hopefully still gives you an idea of what is happening in the Parish (and just outside).

If you would like an entry adding or an existing event updated, please contact paulcb@nullblofield.net.
