The backdrop of the Peak District formed a lovely setting for the August Garden Party in the grounds of the Church of Our Lady of Sorrows at Bamford.

  Parishioners were joined by friends and members of the village and from the sister Church of St Michael the Archangel at Hathersage.    There were numerous stalls, a raffle and tombola and delicious cream teas which added to the enjoyment of everyone.

  A big ‘thank you’ to all who worked so hard and to those who supported this successful event which raised £923.
