Residents and Staff at The Old Rectory were happy to see that the rain didn’t spoil the annual Grappenhall Walking Day, which took place on the 28th June.

The Walking Day is a tradition going back 180 years. Church Rector Rev Jane Proudfoot started the day with celebratory community worship and then the crowd of villagers, children and members of local groups and organisations began the Walk of Witness around the village, led by Dobcross Youth Band.

The Residents and Staff had a fantastic vantage point from the Old Rectory’s veranda when the procession took a lovely detour through our grounds!

What a lovely day, despite the weather!
