In a quiet and gently peaceful area of Silverfield lies the Children’s Burial Ground, known locally as Calvary. Anyone familiar with the New Testament will understand the profound sadness and pain that that name conveys. How the area came into being, the place it occupies in the hearts of those most familiar with it, and how it was restored to the consciousness of the community is beautifully recalled in The Gathering Book.
On Friday 2nd August, we will be holding a walk from the Community Centre to the Children’s Burial Ground. We’ll set off from the Centre at 7:30pm and, after a pause for contemplation at Calvary, return for refreshments. We hope as many people as possible will join us.
