Easter Monday 2008, saw the Church have an Open Day after the Easter services for people to see the beautiful floral arrangements in the church, and combine that with the popular climb to the top of the tower.  Gary Jacobs and Alan Kitchen brought us these wonderful views of the church and the surrounding countryside from a wonderful viewpoint.
