Active retirement

Busy day today.  Alison and I were lined up on the steps with the staff to greet the second wave of retired clergy – about 35 of them.  A good time was had by all – we’d opened up the little-used west wing at Blogstead so there was space for some whist in the conservatory – and a little light community hymn singing as the afternoon wore on.  However, the Blogstead cellars stand in urgent need of replenishment.
