Midsummer Garland

In mediaeval times and later, it was the custom every Midsummer night, for a garland to be hung up at the door and watched till the next morning by the alms-men, in memory of St John the Baptist. Thanks to a bequest by the late Lady May Thornton, this custom had been restored and a garland of fresh flowers is hung on the 24th June, St John the Baptist’s Day.

Garden improvements at St Johns’

Garden improvements at St Johns’

During October 2017, St Johns’ underwent some exciting garden improvements.  We now have a new wide pathway, which enables easy access to the gardens and to two larger patios.  All we need now is some warmer weather, so we can make good use of these new outside areas.
