Celebrating Blythburgh Day 2012

 

Enjoying the BBQ in the garden of The Priory

 

Blythburgh's third annual celebration day on July 22nd happily coincided with the first real sunny day of the summer.  The day opened with a service in Holy Trinity Church.  Then villagers and visitors enjoyed games in the Village Hall, and a barbeque, bar and music in the garden of The Priory (with thanks to Nick and Susan Haward).  A group of stalls created a market atmosphere under the trees. Special treats included a tour round the priory ruins with an update on exciting archaeological developments, and a wildlife walk.  Those lucky enough to find a place on the oversubscribed river trips, led by a Natural England guide, found perfect conditions on the Blyth.
