The Legend of Robin Redbreast

Christmas Robin

Hopefully those of you who live in our parishes will have received this year’s Christmas card with details of all our Christmas services (or will shortly). There are also some cards in the churches.

Our cheerful Robin is thanks to local artist Dorothy McCutcheon who was inspired by the legend of the Robin in the stable. If you don’t know this legend you can find out about it here:
