For some time Thorney Abbey has been looking at the possible removal of the large Sycamore Tree in the front corner of the Abbey Grounds. All the permissions were granted and the work booked in – and quite a job it was, as you can see from the photos it was a lot of effort. If you look at the base you can see that the tree was rotten in the core of the trunk. There was also a Victorian nail in the tree which the Chainsaw struck – ribena bottle for scale! It certainly makes the view of the Abbey look a bit different!
St Matthew’s Church, Eye held an Art and Craft Festival on the 22nd-23rd July 2017. There was a large variety of Arts and Crafts on display including Crocheting, Paintings, Wood Turning, Jewellery, Plant Sale, Calligraphy, Card Making, Knitting and more. We also had a BBQ on the Saturday and there were Books and Bric-a-Brac as well. We have some photos from the weekend below.
On the 4th May 2017 we celebrated 100 years of the Mothers’ Union in Eye. We had a special centenary service at St Matthew’s with the theme for the evening being Faith in Action. We had worship lead by the St Matthew’s team, the service lead by the Vicar of Eye – Colin Hurst and a talk by the president of the Mothers’ Union in Peterborough Diocese, Barbara Haynes. It was a great evening, celebrating all that the Mothers’ Union has achieved in Eye and looking forward to the future.
