2nd & 3rd Oct - Gt Cressingham is holding a Tribute Weekend with Heritage Display

On Saturday & Sunday 2nd & 3rd of October,from 5.p.m.each day, Gt Cressingham is holding a Tribute Weekend, to celebrate the mapping of the churchyard. The graves have all been plotted on a map,and the tombstones & inscriptions recorded in a book, which is kept in the church. During that weekend, Mrs Sally North will open the former village school, now a Victorian School & Museum. There will be an art exhibition in the village hall,(Saturday only) and in the Parish Church an exhibition of village life & history. Parish records from the Norfolk Records office will be on show,also photographs of village events, village characters, a history of the Methodist church,60 years of the Women’s Institute, and many other interesting aspects of village life. We have also found books about the village and some written by authors who have lived in the village.

Refreshments & car parking are available at the village hall.

On Sunday at 6.p.m. there will be a tribute service to remember all who have been interred in the churchyard during the last 50 years.Their names will be read out and tribute paid to them. We invite you,if you wish to write a tribute to your family (no larger than A4 size please), with a photograph,and fix this to our tribute wall.These will be made into a book as a lasting memorial to these village residents,making these people more than just a name on a tombstone. Please come! There is something to interest everyone.
