John Vigar`s February update

The snowdrops are out and it almost feels as if Spring is around the corner. Many churches are now back to opening normally - I`ve visited 42 churches in January of which only 6 have been locked. However, some churches are either still hesitant to open, or have lost the momentum of opening from which they may never recover. It`s still a fluid situation.

 

I`m delighted to say that my new book on Churches of Kent has been published by Amberley Books. It is a completely new book covering 50 churches ranging from the famous to the little known and is illustrated by 100 colour photographs. The book is available from all the usual outlets and also direct from the publishers Amberley Books. It will be followed in a couple of months by Churches of Hampshire which is already available for discounted order from the same website. Churches of Cambridgeshire will be out in 2022 - I`m thoroughly enjoying working on it at the moment.

 

The much-postponed Tour of Somerset Churches is finally taking place in April. It is now full, with a waiting list, and we look forward to visiting 20 churches from our base in Ilminster. Booking for the Leicestershire Churches Tour which runs from October 10th-13th opens in April.

 

My Zoom lectures continue until the end of March. If you haven`t yet attended, please consider doing so. It is very easy to sign up and use and it would be lovely to have you with me. The lecturers start at 7.30pm
