Eric walkMr Eric Acey aged 74yrs set off from Sproatley church on our 10 mile  benefice walk on 25th August 2013, finishing at St Andrew’s for a well earned cup of tea and delicious cake.  A lovely service followed lead by Rev’d Ian Blythe –  after which Eric left for a long  soak in the bath.   What an achievement  at 74yrs old
