News, updates and the newsletter

I thought this would be a good point to mention that the monthly newsletter has replaced the need to post as much news on the website. Also I have opened up a youtube channel so that I can post talks on the website via a link rather than the written form we have using. There is currently nothing on the channel but I will be trying to post quite regularly starting  in October. I hope these changes are useful and an improvement. Further details when I get back from Throssel.

Roadworks affecting Priory

Starting on the 27th August until the end of September there are roadworks all along Cressingham Road. They are starting outside the Priory so hopefully as they move up the hill the direct affect on access and parking will soon be over.


I apologise but I have had to cancel the group afternoon  meeting on Friday 16th August as no one is available to open up the Priory. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Priory work days

Occasionally we have work days her at the Priory. I have scheduled two of these for the next couple of months or so. The first is Saturday April 27th followed by Saturday 8th June. They will both run from 9.30 to 5.00. Please feel free to do as much as you wish between those times.There is ongoing gardening as usual as well as the preperation and glossing of the woodwork throughout the temple. This hasn’t been done for a while and a freshen up is needed. These days are a fine oppurtunity to work alonside other sangha members and practice meditation in activity. If you are interested then please let me know so that I can make sure there is work for everyone. If you don’t feel up to the work offered (for any reason) then of course there are meals to prepare which may suit. I look forward to seeing you as usual and am grateful for all the help there is.

Redecorating front room

We have just redecorated the front room at the Priory. Thanks Jafer for all your help. I have replaced the ice blue with warmer tones. Most of the walls are now in Dusted Rose with the window wall in bleached Sand. I think it has made a vast difference and hope you agree when you come to visit. As the year progresses we will be re glosssing all the woodwork which is quite damaged with chips and scrapes for example.I think giving the place a freshen up is long overdue. Any help you can manage will be greatly appreciated.
