PICTURES: Special Plough Sunday Service in Caundle Marsh

A SPECIAL Plough Sunday Service took place in Caundle Marsh on January 14.

The congregation gathered to sing traditional hymns and music from village songster Eric Upton, accompanied by visiting organist, Lizzy Dumas.

Jenny Nelson, Acting Curate, blessed the plough and the seed in the chilly January farmyard, where all assembled for part of the service.

The service was keenly supported by the Hiscock family, with Di providing bacon and sausage rolls and a variety of drinks, and James a duo of tractors, the plough, and a variety of animals for children to pet.

The rest of the PCC team, led by Lally Holme and Janet Cowan, turned their hands to engaging with parents and pupils from the village primary school.

Model farms were on display, complete with scale models of barns and dozens of authentic figures and animals, crafted by churchwarden, Edward Cowan, pursuing his enduring passion for metal-cast, hollow figures.

The service came after a successful tractor run in October.
