Heating the Church

On 10th March 2014 Friends of St Oswald's were pleased to host a 'party' in the church to mark the commissioning of a new heating system funded by the Friends.

Peter Hamilton, who doggedly worked very hard in overcoming all the church protocols, gave a talk about the many obstacles to be overcome to arrive at the commissioning stage. Joan Barnard set up a mini court case which was very amusing with Peter in the dock explaining the events of it all. Fran Parkinson sang in the Bleak Mid Winter and Sue Richardson sang too. The singing made a nice feature of the evening. Wine and Canap├ęs were had by all. We were as warm as toast! Bliss!

Gilbertine Ruins

In the grounds of St Oswald's there are some Gilbertine ruins which have been excavated to form a very impressive glimpse of history.
