Our exhibition designed by Sue Hughes is now in place inside the beautiful St Luke’s Church, Snailbeach. This Victorian church was in danger of closure, but thanks to the efforts of local vicar, Reverend Giles Tulk and the parochial church council, it has now been designated a festival church with limited services but more community use.
The Mary Webb Society became involved thanks to former chairman, Wynford Wyke and has resolved to support the church in the heart of Mary Webb country by mounting a semi-permanent exhibition. The “Treasures” exhibition, previously shown at Shrewsbury museum, Ludlow and Much Wenlock is now in place and will be available for the public to view from Saturday 8th July 2017 to coincide with the Snailbeach and Stiperstones villages annual Beach Party event. The church will then be open daily from 9.00 to 5.00pm over the next three months.
The Flower Festival in the church coincided with the Beach Party event. The beautiful arrangements were all inspired by hymns. The effect was breathtaking and the smell, divine.
