Sandringham and West Newton school held their annual Mothering service at West Newton church on the 29th March. It was a lovely sunny morning. After a short service in church everybody went outside for the clypping of the church. This is a medieval custom at which everyone holds hands and makes a loop around the church in order to show our love and respect for mother church. With parents and staff members as well as the children, we were easily able to completely surround the church! we then have 3 cheers for the church. The service finishes with prayers in the churchyard.
Flitcham school did their service on 28th March. Sadly, they weren't so blessed with sunny weather. Flitcham church is much larger so it was a real stretch but we managed it there as well!
