Camping weekend

New Forest parish camping – always a great highlight of September – will be from Friday 31 August to Sunday 2 September this year, and you’re warmly invited to come along. If you read this before it’s happened, it’s not too late to book, and you can attend part time. Further details from

Avon Tyrrell is a wonderful place to camp; lots of young families will be there, as well as older ones with teenagers. There will be expeditions across the moorland and plenty of time for games, ice cream, beer, tales round the campfire and open-air Holy Communion – it’s a great way to take a mini-holiday and get to know everyone a bit better.
