COMING SOON TO ST MARY'S: WILD BOY - the true story of Peter the Wild Boy

Wild Boy is the incredible, true, moving story of a feral child, found in the woods of Hanover, Germany in 1726. Unable to speak, or stand up straight, the Wild Boy was named Peter and taken to the court of King George I, where he lived as a pet. The King quickly became bored of the child and soon Peter’s story was lost to legend, until a fire broke out in Norwich prison. During the evacuation one of the inmates was recognised as the Wild Boy. This production tells Peter’s story with luscious live music, movement, puppetry and magic, and questions what it means to be human. Suitable for adventurous audiences aged 8 and above. We are so excited to welcome this amazing performance to St Mary's

Lots of people had a great time and we raised a record amount of £4,868 (after deduction of all expenses), which will be shared between local charity People Not Borders, Clare Hodgson’s charity GO MAD (Go Make a Difference) and St Mary’s Church Roof Fund. A detailed breakdown of the takings per stall is displayed on the notice board at the back of the church. The organisation of the fete requires a lot of planning and many, many helpers both on the day and behind the scenes and we rely on the kindness of parishioners to donate cakes, bottles, plant

Trinity 3: Responding to a photograph

At the fete yesterday on of the charities that we supported was People Not Borders and over the last four to five years they have raised the plight of refugees and organised collections of necessary items for children in camps. It is a good charity to support and we have had Sue Hampton speak at St Mary’s. It has been estimated that in the world at this present time there are 68.5 million displaced people who are fleeing war, violence and persecution. Every period in world history has known massive displacement of peoples. I read about the movement of black American to the Northern cities such as Chicago in the 1920s, and the mood was summed up a comment “the worst place there, has to be bet
