Parish Boundary Walk, May 2021

On Rogation Sunday, May 23rd 2021, and organised and led by Gill Butterworth, a group of Hadstock residents ‘beat the bounds’ and walked 7.5 miles round the Parish boundary as part of the 1020-2020 Millennium celebrations. Starting on Linton Road near the zoo, the group walked anticlockwise, had a lunch break in Nunn Wood, and finished in the Grip at Linton.

Patricia Croxton-Smith (known to us all as Crocky) was Fabric Officer for the church for 40 years, and worked tirelessly to see it through many phases of essential building repairs from the 1960s on. She stepped down from this post at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting on 21 March 2017, when Rick Albrow took her place. Robin Betser was churchwarden for 8 years and also stepped down at that meeting. Members of the congregation, the Friends of St Botolph and the Hadstock Society joined together to thank them and celebrate their achievements. Left to right: Irene Stapleton, Robin Betser, the Revd Paula Griffiths, Crocky, Hamish McIlwrick, Tony Handley and Malcolm Seward.

Breakfast discussions at the King’s Head

Breakfast discussions at the King’s Head

In the Autumn of 2015, the Church arranged a series of breakfast discussions in the pub with local residents talking about their expertise. This was the first. James Hewlett (far right) talked about Nepal and the devastating effect of its earthquake. David Taylor (seated second right), landlord of the King’s Head, provided breakfast, and the event raised funds for James’s chosen charity in Nepal.
