Bluebell Service 2022
After a two year absence, it was a real joy to gather in Swithland Woods for our annual Bluebell Service.
The service was led by our Acting-Rector, Revd Colin Resch and the Bible Reading given by the Deputy Mayor of Charnwood, Cllr Jenni Tillotson. It was a beautifully warm and sunny afternoon and members of the Syston Band (pictured above) and a few of our choir members led the singing of our hymns. There was a fabulous turnout and people generously donated £190 to the work of The Children’s Society for which we are truly grateful.
The first Bluebell Service was held in Swithland woods on 20th May 1928 and has continued annually ever since.
Please could you send me the date for the 2023 Bluebell Service – not sure if it is 22nd May as advertised on your front page as it is a Monday.
Thank you for asking. The date of this year’s Bluebell Service is 7th May. You can find more information on our website here: https://stleonardsswithland.org/events/event/bluebell-service/
Not to be confused with the Spring Walk which is taking place on 22nd May.
