Methodist President of Conference visits Burton-in-Lonsdale 2013

Pictures from the day we went to Burton-in-Lonsdale to take part in a service with the president of conference. Videos will be put at end

On the Bibby's bus  (meanwhile J.A. gives geology/history commentary over loudspeaker)

Burton-in-Lonsdale Chapel

See snow-capped Ingleborough in the distance

Before the service the kitchen team are preparing the cups for the coffee

It's a tad cold outside

But warm inside

Mr Robinson, (Rev Wakelin's father-in-law) is welcomed

After the service we go out of the church and into ..


the schoolroom

Margaret has a word with John...

Martha is wearing her red hat

 I get the opportunity to go back to the church to take some photos:

Holding the long service certificates for 50 years and 70 years

Judith shows Rev Wakelin some Blue Moor-grass - a speciality of  N Yorks/Lancs/Cumbria

..and a copy of Green-Christian
See the letter I gave Rev Wakelin about
"Green" Activities at St John's, Settle

On the way home we notice some of the snow drifts
More drifts - some people along farm tracks had had to walk to get in to the Service
