Many thanks to everyone who came to the Light Ships event at Whaplode Church yesterday afternoon. It was wonderful to see so many friendly faces and to finally be able to share the work with the people involved. I’ll add some photos from the day here as soon as possible. And special thanks to Tim Galley and Tony Fitt-Savage whose organ recitals created such lovely music during the exhibition, to Jo Wheeler for recreating her Village Postcard project specially in the porch, and most of all to the community of St Mary’s who welcomed us, refreshed us and rang the bells to send us on our way.

The photos give a nice sense of the occasion. They were taken by Steve Hatton at Electric Egg for Transported, and I’m grateful to both of them for permission to include them here.

It’s not over yet though – the exhibition will be open today after the Remembrance Day Service and The Light Ships book will be on sale in aid of church funds. And there will be exhibitions at Wrnagle Church on 22-23 November and Gosberton Church on 29-30 November too.

Finally – a glitch. It seems that some copies of the book have a binding error which means that pages 9-24 are missing and pages 25-40 are included twice. If anyone came away from the event yesterday with a defective copy, please let me know, or contact Lauren Williams at Transported and we’ll replace it with a good one.
