Ashwellthorpe’s annual Cream Tea was held on a glorious afternoon this week in the garden of David Turner’s Woodman’s Lodge and a good crowd turned out to enjoy scones, jam and cream, washed down with a cup of tea or two. The garden was looking splendid; thanks must go to Mr Turner for hosting the event and to the many bakers and helpers on the day who made it such a good village event. Over £330 was raised.
There is one service at All Saints’ Church in Ashwellthorpe in July 2017:

Just a few days before the Gift Day held at the Church on Saturday 5 November 2016, some of the lead was stolen – overnight on Tuesday 1 November – from the roof of the Thorp Chapel on the north side of the Church building. The theft was noticed the next morning which enabled the police and insurance company to be advised immediately and for a temporary weather cover to be erected to avoid further water damage. A Faculty is now being sought from the Diocese to replace the lead with terne-coated stainless steel.
