Church Big Day Out

Posted on 4 August, 2016 at 8:35

Hi everyone,

on Saturday we had our church big day out to Paradise wild life park, we had a full coach and two cars, it was amazing, so much to see and do, there were so many things for the children, shows and activities, games and rides even swiming! We left London at 9am and arrived at 10am so just one hour journey, which was great. There was plenty of quiet areas for those who wanted to sit in the sun and watch the lions and tigers.  For those more energetic the water pistons were a riot and the live animal shows were so interesting and entertaining. Many of us went to the speedway museum and had a personal guided tour by Easterine, our organist who's husband who recently passed away Tony, was prominently featured, he was a famous speed way motor bike rider for West Ham, to see more about Tony visit  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDpoHFZuVLM ;

At 5pm we all met up for afternoon tea and fellowship, we sang hymns and the children talked about what they liked best, also some of the adults, this was followed by a short prayer and a delicious bring and share tea which was devoured whilst we picniked on the grass in the glorious sunshine.  At 6pm it was time to say farewell to Paradise park and return home back to St Nicholas church all arrived safely.

We thank God that we were able to go on such a trip, we feel very blessed indeed to have been given assistance from our charity benefactors Machins and the Paradise Park which generously gave us a reduction for our entry tickets.  We thank all our organisers especially Easterine, Maureen and Jennifer, who organised us all on the day.

Have a blessed Week

Revd Louise
