Here’s a lovely date for your diaries. On Sunday 7 July at 3.30pm, the choir of Holy Trinity, Hereford, will sing choral evensong at St Mary’s Church, Monnington-on-Wye. And if that wasn’t enough, it will be followed by plentiful tea and cake.
For those who didn’t come last year, Holy Trinity choir is one of the best in the county and are a real treat to hear.
Parking will be available in the field opposite the path to the church with the spaces in front of Monnington Court reserved for disabled drivers only.
This update follows our post on 26 October where it was stated, “Following a fall of plaster from the roof of St Mary’s Church, Staunton-on-Wye, and the safety concerns that raises, the church is now temporarily closed and unavailable for services pending an architect’s inspection.”
At Monday’s PCC meeting it was decided that until the building repairs could be undertaken, Staunton parishioners would join with services at St John the Baptist, Letton on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month. The Staunton Carol Service (Sunday 16 December, 5.30pm) and Crib Service (Christmas Eve, 4.00pm) will take place in the Village Hall.
Joining the rest of the nation in the Act of Remembrance at 11.00am on Sunday 11 November, Weobley will hold its Silence and laying of wreaths around the war memorial in the churchyard opposite the main church entrance.
This will be preceded by a silent march to the churchyard, leaving from the centre of the village at 10.45am, led by Clergy, Royal British Legion members, Scouts and other uniformed participants, accompanied by muffled bells.
