Just another weblog

Damselflies are here again – and Diddington Church

Just noticed the first damselfly in the back garden – I think it is a:

commonblue damselfly

but I might be wrong….

Living so near to Paxton Pits, its great to have the benefit of the wildlife there creeping into the nearby gardens.  Only seen a couple so far – last summerthey visited the Vucarage garden in great numbers.

Talking of numbers, we were few at Diddington this morning for the family worship service – but there is something special about having a small gathering. Four ” grown-ups” and  12 year old Holly had a chat around Ascension and its  mean ing – I far prefer that syle of ” preaching” than standing in a pulpit and reading a prepared talk – still when there are 40 plus it is probably logistically easier.

Building work starts this week on Diddington church to provide a new toilet and kitchenette area. Hopefully this will give the ancient building a new lease of life. But Diddington does do something very special – it is open 24/7 and lots of people do come in for some peace and quiet.

Next week, Sunday May 31st we have our Pentecost Songs of Praise with HC at Dddington at 10.00am – everyone is always made very welcome at Diddington.

Off to do a baptism at Great Paxton now – glad the weather is warm and sunny for the family. Similar work to introduce a new toilet and kitchenette area starts at GP church in July – not that I have a special agenda about toilets in

churches – never! toilet

Hope all paxtonvic blog readers are having a nice bank holiday….

  1. Can’t help thinking that picture of a loo looks suspiciously similar to the picture St Alban’s Diocese are using to front their Mission section
