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.
It was a delight hearing the wedding bells ring out as we welcomed our first wedding couple of 2022 to the wonderful setting of St Leonard’s Church and we offer our congratulations to Mark & Faye as they embark on the rest of their lives together as man and wife.
The service was conducted by our Acting Rector, Revd Colin Resch. The organist was Mr Paul Wilcox.
