A Summer in Sedbergh….

A Summer in Sedbergh – and quite some summer!  Tourists galore soaking up the sunshine, browsing in the bookshops and hiking up the Howgills, while the locals are enjoying the summer weather walking their dogs, and smiling at increased trade in the town…

Meanwhile I’m busy sorting, clearing, packing and driving up almost daily to the Sedbergh Charity Shop to offload box after box of all sorts of wonderful stuff, now all on display inside the shop and outside on the street.  If you’re up this way, do come and check it all out – there’s some great bargains on offer!  The not-so-wonderful things are now all crammed into the recycling bins, also in Sedbergh, and the rest – the rubbish, well, that’s all piled high in the dustbins kindly lent to us by our lovely neighbours.  And lovely neighbours they all are, full of encouragement and support when we need it most.  And all of them full of praise for our newly cleaned-out and almost empty garage!

So far, 9 full-carloads of stuff sent to charity and/or recycling, and more to go, yippee!

Yep, the people are great, and Sedbergh is beautiful, especially on a sunny day!  Notice photos of our other neighbours, the cows and sheep, who keep us entertained with all their escapades in the field across the road…

At Bishop Lai’s request, to share with his Quaker friends in Taiwan, I’ve been to check out the history of the Quakers, who kind of started in this area around Sedbergh…

Fox’s Pulpit on Firbank Fell, where George Fox preached to the multitudes in 1652 is very important in their history….

As is Brigflatts, the second-oldest Quaker Meeting House in the country… wow, what history!

Thanks for all your prayers and support, so far so good, and it’s all happening!
