How things have changed

An enjoyable and profitable afternoon

Exploring Gravesend's ancient parishes

On 20 September the Gravesend and District Christian Aid committee hosted a very enjoyable afternoon, welcoming local historian Christoph Bull to St Paul’s United Reformed Church.  

Christoph is a very entertaining speaker with a wealth of knowledge, as well as amusing anecdotes to raise a giggle!  

His subject: 'Exploring Gravesham’s ancient parishes' explained how the boundaries have changed over the years and shared interesting and informative details of each parish — sometimes also including antics of various incumbents in years gone by, which, as you can imagine, raised a smile or two!

The afternoon was very well attended and raised £270. We are very grateful to all who helped in any way, especially Christoph for his encouragement and support.
