Church Open Weekend, 19-20 July

Saturday 19th July 11am to 5pm and Sunday 20th July 2pm to 5pm

We will be at St James the Great Church for the annual Church
Open Weekend.

We will have a display of information on the history of the village.
Members of our society will be present to demonstrate the website and
the wealth of historical information stored within its pages:
the revised section on the church including the interactive interior
panoramas and photographs of old Hanslope.

Copies of the 2015 Society calendar will be available for purchase
as well as other publications on the history of the village.

The Tower will be open from 2.00pm to 5.00 pm both days which
affords wonderful views over the Buckinghamshire and South
Northamptonshire countryside.

There will be a range of activities, cake & craft stalls, raffle and
children's activities.

Refreshments will include jacket potatoes on Saturday and cream
teas on Sunday.
