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.

Dawn's Meals

Many of you will have heard about Dawn Harper’s mammoth efforts to provide good, wholesome food for isolated people in our community throughout the pandemic.  This still continues.

ASDA logo

Just before Christmas she made an application for funding to Asda’s ‘Feeding Communities’, the plan was to create and deliver Christmas dinners. 

Due to receiving so many applications, Asda were overwhelmed with requests, there was a delay in the confirmation.  However, after Christmas we heard that we had been successful but then had to give this a bit of a rethink... February isn’t the right time to deliver Christmas meals!

Dawn came up trumps again and contacted families in the community who would benefit from a sizeable hamper, all the contents purchased from Asda.  Asda themselves were incredibly supportive throughout the whole process and enabled Dawn to order online and have the food for the hampers delivered. 

These were gratefully received, and Dawn received several kind comments such as... ‘This has made such a difference to our family during this difficult time’ and ‘We would just like to say  thank you to Dawn for organising this!’

A big Thank you to both Dawn and ASDA!

Dawn Harper Menu

Dawn is now pleasing other people in the community, by providing a take-away breakfast and lunch menu from her cafe at the back of the Red Lion Pub, Fritchley, DE56 2FT

All food is freshly cooked to order using quality ingredients served Tuesday to Friday between 9.00 am and 1.30 pm. Delivery can also be arranged.

Pre order if possible please by telephoning or text Dawn on 07791 559394. Payment by cash or card.
