Heritage Open Week
St Mary's Church, Yate
This year we are holding a heritage open week from 11th to 19th September. Booklets about the history of St Mary’s will be available along with an audio tour of the church showing you the fascinating history of the building and how it has been a central part of Yate for nearly 800 years - everything from the Tudors to the First World War.
On 11th September at St Mary's we are holding a Heritage Open Day. We will be open between 10am and 4pm with cakes and tea. We will also have a slideshow playing showing the history of the church and the church history trail sheets will be available for people to learn more about St Mary's.
In St James, we will be holding a breakfast followed by a walk.
There is a walk leaving St Mary's at 10am and St James at 11am, would you be willing to get sponsors for your walk?
We need your help with both events. If you are willing to get sponsors for the walk, man the tea stall at St Mary's at any time during the day or help with the serving and preparing of the breakfasts at St James contact Hywel on 07539069811 or reply to this email.
Both events are in aid of the church and the Ride n Stride for Gloucester Historic Churches Trust.
