Vista Group Hear About Church Dedications

[An image showing Vista Group Hear About Church Dedications]I gave a talk recently to the Loughborough group run by Vista, who provide services to blind and visually impaired people.

I did this at short notice, when the speaker who had been originally booked had to cry off. The meeting was held at the Salvation Army in the town.

The talk I gave this time was "Dionysius, Hardulph and Egelwin", looking at the dedications of Anglican churches in Leicestershire and Rutland, and at the identities of the relevant saints, together with an explanation of what makes each one interesting.

And in case you are wondering, St. Dionysius is the parish church of Market Harborough, St. Hardulph features at Breedon-on-the-Hill (it`s St. Mary and St. Hardulph) and St. Egelwin is the parish church of Scalford.

If you would like me to give this talk (or any other, for that matter) to your group, feel free to get in touch.
