Walsingham National Children's
1st -3rd March Friday to the Sunday. We need to book by
December 5th 2012
We as a Diocese are once again planning to organise a group to go on the Children's Pilgrimage to Walsingham.
Please do encourage your young children to come along.
We go up on the 9.00am Friday until the Sunday evening about 7-8pm.
It is an educational visit so Mary Nagel will contact all of the Headteachers of the Children's schools to ask for them to go on the pilgrimage on the Friday.
The Children stay in the shrine, usually we are in Recheldis House. A mixture of men and women leaders all CRB checked. The children share rooms, usually two or three in a room of the same sex. We try and make sure they are all comfortable with whom they are sharing. The accommodation is secure .
All Children and Adults on the site wear a wrist band so no strangers are allowed and all Adults on the site have a current CRB. We eat are meals in the Shrine refectory, lovely!
St John's Ambulance are there over the
weekend in case of any need. Proper risk assessments and medical forms etc are taken out before hand.
For those who go on the Pilgrimage it is a very formative experience. A video of the last two pilgrimages can be seen on the Walsingham Children's page.
Any queries please contact
