8 November - 31 December: Peterchurch in Picture
We are delighted, once again, to showcase the work of Peterchurch in Picture. The group began during Covid-19 when Peterchurch villagers and Golden Valley residents began sharing photographs taken on mobile 'phones during daily lockdown walks. Since 2019, membership of this informal Facebook Group has grown and beautiful local images are shared regularly amongst the group. This is an opportunity for the pictures to be seen by a wider audience.
1st & 3rd Wednesdays of each month, 7pm - 8pm (7 Dec & 21 Dec)
These sessions of reflection and contemplative practice are open to all; please bring an open mind and your own spirituality. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more...
