Lord-Lieutenant visits St Peter’s Village Tour,13th August 2015
The St Peter’s Village Tour http://villagetour.co.uk/ has been taking place for the last 21 years. It is an entirely volunteer-led initiative which tells the history of St Peter’s, near Broadstairs, through vignettes acted by volunteer members of the village community in costume.
Sadly on 13th August a heavy downpour forced the cast and audience into adopting the wet weather programme which entailed the various vignettes being acted out around the Church.
The St Peter’s Village Tour group was awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service in 2009.
A voluntary collection is made at the end of each tour and any profits after the expenses, are donated to local projects, including the Church Tower which is currently undergoing extensive repairs.
Speaking at the conclusion of the Tour the Lord- Lieutenant congratulated the cast and organisers for their polished performance under difficult circumstances, and commended everyone for the donations they make to local projects.
