PRESS RELEASE .
LAUNCH OF TWO MORE CHURCH TRAILS
Open to everyone.
More of the beautiful churches in Fenland feature in the two latest Diocese of Ely Church Trails were launched at Doddington Church on Wednesday 12th April at 12.00 noon by the Lord Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire, Mr James G P Crowden, KST JP.
Trail 5 is entitled “Splendor and Simplicity” and features Leverington, Tydd St Giles, Gorefield, Parson Drove (St John the Baptist) Guyhirn St Mary Magdalene and the Chapel of Ease, and Wisbech St Mary.
Trail 6 is entitled “Angels and Gargoyles” and covers Manea, Chatteris, Doddington, Wimblington, March St Wendreda and Whittlesey St Mary. MEDIA AND PHOTOGRAPHERS WELCOME On Saturday 15th April there will be a guided tour of the “Splendor and “Simplicity” trail starting from Leverington Church at 10.00am.
The aims of the Church Trails project are to encourage churches to be open to visitors and to welcome them and to attract tourists from outside the area who will then spend time and money in shops ,pubs and garages and other facilities, so helping the local economy. This means that the church can play a fuller part in the community which it serves.
There are now six trails in Fenland and West Norfolk. Each trail covers six churches. The trail packs are attractively produced with a fully laminated card on each church which includes details of local facilities. The packs cost £3.50 each and are available from Tourist Information Centers, churches and local bookshops or from Ely Diocesan Office (01353 652730)
