Service of Thanksgiving on July 14th

The day on which the Reverend Nicholas Chamberlaine died 300 years ago.

Almost 1000 Bedworth schoolchildren sang their hearts out at the special service in the Quadrangle of the Almshouses.

There were hymns, historical readings, a short address and prayers. Rose, Lady Daventry, also presented local Schools with a financial gift for their libraries. The bells of All Saints Parish Church rang in thanksgiving as the service ended.

Guests were then invited to the Church for the unveiling of a memorial plaque to Nicholas Chamberlaine. Music was played on a Clavinova by the Rev. Rupert Jeffcoat who had chosen a special piece composed by the Rev. Richard Mudge, a former Bedworth Rector who died in 1763.
