And some words from Linda Moffat.  “In the morning Andrew and I  visited  Higham, Chalk, Milton, Istead Rise, Southfleet, Hartley (All Saints & St Francis) and Longfield and then time ran out.

St Peter & St Paul Shorne combined Ride /Stride with an Open Day.  This was a success as you can see from these pictures which were all taken at Shorne, except the one taken at Longfield where they always provide an excellent buffet!

We were delighted that Bishop Trevor (photos below)  visited us accompanied by his wife, Margaret and stayed for tea and cake.  They visited several churches during the day. The couple with the bishop and his wife are Peter and Maureen Morten who walked on our behalf.”
