An all-age service took place at St Martin of Tours, Alfreton’s ancient parish church, on Candlemas Day. The photograph shows lay reader Peter Singleton, who conducted the service, helping Emily and Isobel light candles. The next all-age service is on Sunday March 1 at 11am, the day after the annual Snowdrop Tea on Saturday February 28. The snowdrops have just started to appear in St Martin’s churchyard, but may soon be nestling under another blanket of snow.
