Suffolk Historic Churches Trust Sponsored Bicycle Ride and Graffiti event at Lidgate church

Sponsored bike ride

Saturday the 13th September 2014 will be the 33rd annual fund raising sponsored bicycle ride for churches of the Bansfield Benefice and the Suffolk Historic Churches Trust.

Half of the proceeds go to the church of your choice and the other half to the Suffolk Historic Churches Trust to help with their charitable work.

The event starts at 9.00am and finishes at 5.00pm. Start and finish whenever you like between these times. Visit by bike or on foot (no horses please) as few or as many churches as you wish. It's a great day out for all the family and there are refreshments (tea, biscuits and soft drinks) at all the churches you visit. It's a great opportunity to visit other churches in the area and to see the rich history of our religious buildings. It's also fun for the whole family and even helps to keep you fit. Why not visit all Seven churches of the Benefice?

Finding out about Graffiti

Matt Champion, the man in charge of finding the graffiti at St Mary's church, Lidgate is making a visit on Sept 13th which coincides with the SHCT sponsored cycle ride. Matt will be on hand to show and discuss the graffiti to anyone who visits on the day between 10am and 4pm. Come along if you would like to learn more.
