The weather was unkind to the group of parishioners from Bungay, Beccles and Southwold who gathered in the ruins of St Andrew’s Walberswick to celebrate the feast of St James and enjoy a picnic. It made for a typical British summer scene: umbrellas, waterproofs, blankets to huddle in.

But, thanks to the musicians, the singing was joyful and the rain didn’t dampen the spirits. Father Charles concelebrated with Father Martin from Beccles. In his homily, Father Charles mentioned the witness of St James, but also told those present that the surrounding ruins and the beautiful present-day church should remind us of the need to conserve not only our built environment but our natural one as well.
