With the day starting cool and wet we were blessed with nice walking weather which seemed to only get better. Soon with the sun shining upon us, over 100 walkers took up the challenge to walk the Rogation route. Toast at the Methodist Chapel set us off and bacon rolls at St Johns Lea Marston got the morning done. The walk to St Cuthberts Shustoke for ploughmans lunch seems to have been diverted to a few of the local pubs as well, but the wine and strawberries at St Leonards Over Whitacre got people ready for the return back to St Giles Nether Whitacre. Here the tea and cake helped people recover before the final service. The bells welcomed people back and the short service - thanksgiving for the finish and the day! was led by Gill. The odd few spots of rain did not seem to spoil the day and all most made it to the end.
