Latest News from Flitton
We are in the church time of year called Trinity. This lasts from early June to mid November with some festivals along the way. When times were normal, I was always glad when Trinity started as for most of the time, the altar and pulpit cloths are green and I didn't have to keep checking when to change the colour. It seems so long since we had a service in church, so I am really looking forward to the 1st Sunday in September when we can start being in church properly. It won't be the same of course - sitting apart from each other, no singing, no refreshments, having to wear masks - but at least we can meet up. Weather permitting, we can talk outside afterwards.
As many of you know, I love Local History and it's amazing what one can find out. I was reading a book about Shakespeare when I came across a reference to Susan, Countess of Kent. After a bit of research, I found out that she was wife to the 5th Earl. I realised that I knew very little about the Earls during most of the Tudor period so it will be very interesting to find out about them - and the link between Shakespeare and the Countess. No doubt there will be an article in a future Flit n More.
