Come and visit the Easter Story - in gardens and windows around Crich!

Palm Sunday 28 March to Easter Monday 5 April

Easter Journey guide-booklets, activity-bags, palm crosses and Hope-together magazines will be available to collect from the Telephone Box in the Market Place.

This is for everyone to enjoy and think about the whole Easter story, not just children!

As well as craft activities, there is a short quiz for children with a mini-egg prize for completion. The eggs can be collected the weekend of Good Friday to Easter Monday (details in the booklet).

Stopping points will be outside the Scout hut, front-gardens in Bower Close, Chase View and The Common, a Market Place window, outside Wesley Chapel and the empty tomb outside St Mary’s.

Look out for the willow-angel up at St Mary’s, and a new willow construction at the Bulling Lane crossing.

The Easter Journey is being put together by members of St Mary’s, Wesley Chapel and others in the community, such as the Willow-Weaving group.

Please adhere to government social distancing guidelines.

The Angel Gabriel has appeared!

by Geoff Brown

The angel Gabriel, created by Crich Willow Weaving Group, at the Bulling Lane - Coasthill juncton

The Crich Willow Weaving Group came together during the first lockdown and started to create a number of artistic pieces (see previous news items relating to the Art Sharing Project). Within a few months of distanced outside working, they agreed to jointly create an uplifting piece for the village.

The Angel Gabriel was the inspiration of their teacher Mogs, with all of the group delighted to contribute. Gabriel now graces the planter on the junction of Bulling Lane and Coasthill as you head up from Crich Market Place.

In daylight the Angel is impressive enough, but is then inspiringly lit after dark.

There has been a huge reaction, with many villagers stopping to take a look. The group commented that:

We are delighted if  folks are enjoying the Crich Angel

In January it is hoped that The Angel will find a permanent home in the church.

The planter will then be planting with bulbs by Jordan James to carry on cheering us through the winter.

In order to ensure social distancing YOU MUST BOOK YOUR PLACE either by emailing martynofford@gmail.com or phoning 01773 853722. You will need to give us your phone number and the exact number of people in your bubble, so seats can be safely allocated. Bubbles should be limited to 6. If your group is more please book as two groups. Places will only be available from December 6th to the 13th. The service is at 6:30pm on Sunday 20 December.

The conduct of the service will comply with Covid Regulations, including the wearing of masks, and details will be explained to you when you book. All arrangements and services are liable to alteration if circumstances change.
