Dear friends and supporters,
After the long lockdown and strangely suspended lives we have all had to survive over the last eighteen months, it feels wonderfully liberating to announce that Ellerton Priory Church will be welcoming visitors once again this September.
Please find attached a flier advertising our Autumn Open Day on Sunday, September 12th, when the Church and churchyard will be open between 10.30 and 17.30. We would really love to see you there, and would be very grateful if you could take a moment to forward the flier to any other friends who might be interested, or print a copy off and display it.
As you know, we have tried to open every year since we acquired the building in the mid-1990s – usually as part of the National Heritage Open Days scheme. Here is a direct link to the details of our Open Day on their website https://www.heritageopendays.org.uk/visiting/event/ellerton-priory-church1 and here is the complete national directory for this year, which is well worth exploring https://www.heritageopendays.org.uk/visiting
Please come and join us if you possibly can. The generous welcome, the guided tours and produce, Ellerton’s glorious atmosphere and our excellent coffee will all be as fine and interesting as ever, and this year Michael has promised even more wonderful cakes – lining up perfectly with the national theme of Edible England!
We greatly look forward to seeing you there, and offer our best wishes,
Ellerton Church Preservation Trust
