Thank you to everyone who took part in the annual Ride and Stride event for Historic Churches Trust on 9th September. The current total of money raised this year is well over £500, of which half goes to the Dorset Historic Churches Trust and half comes back to St Mary’s, so thank you to all who contributed so generously.

Below are some churches and views that were seen by Anne Brown and our Vicar Stephen as they travelled around Purbeck and then through Poole.

Well done to Anne who managed a whopping 32 churches ending with the beautiful church of St Mary, Almer.
