Our Community  Joining Together

Sunday 22nd August 2021 The Start Time: 1pm/2pm


About Louise

Louise Clark, who passed away very suddenly earlier this year, was well known in our community as the former Administrator to our three local parish churches and as a Governor at St Peter’s School. But Louise was so much more than these titles, she was a bright energetic spark who loved nature, walking, and children. Louise was passionate about Children’s Church and was deeply involved with St Peter’s Little Fishes. We wanted to find a way of meeting to celebrate Louise’s life and so a group of us came together and the Walk for Louise was born.
