Beating the Bounds 2013

About 30 people enjoyed beating the bounds of Bellerby this year. Hymns were sung, readings read and prayers said a 11 significant places in the village, finishing in the Cross Keys pub where a final prayer and blessing was given, followed by Sunday lunch.
Many then took part in a Rogationtide Service in St John's Church, lead by Rev Michael Hepper, with John Kiberd playing the organ.
We were again blessed with good weather
