St Alfege’s Millennium

Rod's lovely pic of St Alfege again...

They probably could have had better weather for the Big Day, but at least at the moment it’s not raining and hopefully it shouldn’t bog down all weekend for the St Alfege commemoration events.

Yes, folks – one thousand years today since our own local saint for local people was martyred. There’s much going on, including a sell-out service (bet they can’t say that phrase too often…) with the outgoing Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, who will, presumably be keeping a beady eye on the living history Viking Camp (complete with longboat) in the park. Should be quite an eyeful.

Full details on the St Alfege Church website¬†and I am sure there will be photographs a-go-go on the usual sites – keep a particular lookout on Greenwich dotcodotuk and IanVisitswho I’m sure will both get there before me…

    Just walked past the village on the grass outside the church. Pouring down with rain but no one seemed put off, clearly made of stronger stuff those Vikings!

    No sign of the vicar though, and a nhew set of bones by the fire place, you don’t think…
