Bishop Graham blesses the project

We attended the Ecumenical Open Air Service today which was taken by Bishop Graham James, the Bishop of Norwich. The service happens every year at St Benets Abbey.

Bishop Graham arrived by wherry.

Then he processed with the Brothers of St Benet’s Abbey up to the cross where the service took place.

After the service everyone processed to the gatehouse and Bishop Graham blessed Withy Arts.

He spoke to Arlen about his drawing, the one of the furious dragon.

and chatted to Peter about his work.

Lots of people saw the dragon.

The day was a perfect celebration of Withy Arts’ work. Many thanks to The Dyballs for a lovely picnic and our trustees Jerry and Melita, Richard and April for their support. We were also delighted to see Martin and Graeme from the Broads Authority.

  1. The dragon looks spectacular in this setting and it will certainly be a source of interest and comment among the many visitors who pass the old Abbey. Everyone is reading the story!
