HODS offer free entry to a wide range of attractions around the UK, giving you an opportunity to discover local treasures and national gems that might not normally be open to the public to explore. W: heritageopendays.org.uk

For the first time ever, both of our St. Mary's will be part of this dynamic programme of over 5,000 events. HODS is England's largest annual festival of history and culture, and runs for ten consecutive days from the 10th to the 19th of September. Both of our Churches will be manned on Saturday 11th September. Please see the above poster and information about events at Eaton Bray.


St Mary's Edlesborough

The Friends of the Church on the Hill, Edlesborough will be setting up on Friday September 10th. We will be manned on the Saturday and Sunday 10 - 4pm, hoping that on the Sunday afternoon we can have our Bell Ringing team, followed by a "Songs of Praise".

Each year HODS has a national theme and this year it is "Edible England". At the time of writing, one of our local beekeepers will be on hand with advice on the conditions and equipment required for healthy productive bees within the ecosystem. We are talking to a local business, who may be able to add to the Edible England' theme. There may be examples of local foraging opportunities and there will be pictures and stories of our village history, and the families that lived here.

As well as enjoying all that the Church building has to offer it is also an opportunity to explore the Churchyard; it is much bigger than you might think. We have retained our wildflower banks and they should be a picture at the time, hopefully alive with bees and other insects.

We will add our event to our website: edlesboroughchurch.org.uk

Retirement of Dr Martyn R Jones

This article was published in October 2012. Please see Latest News for more recent information.

Dr Martyn Jones retired as a General Practitioner from the surgeries in July 2012 after many years of hard work and dedication to the local communities.

He started the practice from his home on 1.2.1985. As the patient numbers grew, he progressed by building the two purpose built premises, which opened in Pitstone on 1.7.1991 and Edlesborough on 1.4.1992. Today the practice is continuing to grow and develop.

He will be missed enormously by patients and staff alike and we are sure you will want to join us in wishing him every good wish for a very long, healthy and happy retirement.

There is a book in reception if you would like to add a message in recognition of the care he has given you over the years.
