This weekend 158 visitors came along to St Marys Church to admire our community’s contribution to the 2018 Horncastle and Villages Churches Festival. The Church was transformed in commemoration of those who lost their lives during the First and Second World Wars. Feedback was very complimentary and many visitors commented on the transformation of the church and the individual displays, all donated and arranged by parishioners. There was special praise for the idea to feature over a thousand knitted poppies, both red and white. This morning children and teachers from the primary school took a break from the classroom to see what can be achieved by a dedicated and creative community team.
