What we do

Walking back to happiness!

Forty four walkers, including three vicars and three dogs, put their best feet forward and enjoyed taking part in this year's Parish Plod around the fields of Burton Lazars on Sunday (July 7th).

They set off from St James' Church, Burton Lazars, and enjoyed a fantastic spread of food and tea, coffee or juice in the building when they had finished.

Special thanks to Brian and Marilyn Wray who organised the event and the team at St James' Church who prepared and served the refreshments afterwards.
