On the Sunday in addition to the normal Services both in the Morning and Evening The Minster Bell ringers will be ringing a Full Peal during the afternoon to mark the Jubilee.

Over Sunday lunchtime  from 12noon until 2.00pm there will be a Street Party Style Lunch on the Minster Green – bring your own picnic lunch and soft drinks – this to keep to the local by-law  of not drinking Alcohol in the Streets of the Town. Coffee and Tea will be available from Church House if required. This event will coincide with the Street Party in the High Street.

Entrance to The Minster is free although donations will be welcome towards the upkeep of The Minster Church.
