Extraordinary women linked to the church celebrated at Heritage Open Days

An exhibition about some of the extraordinary women with links to  All Saints Church in Wokingham features historic and contemporary women, from  Queen Elizabeth I to modern-day Olympic Games medal winners. The event is part of the church’s involvement in this year’s Heritage Open Days, being staged by historic buildings across the country, including also Wokingham Town Hall.

Organiser John Hook said:” There are changes planned for this historic building. Come and see a special display of our 800-year history, details of some exceptional women with associations to the church and view our plans for the future.”

Included in the series of days will bell tower visits on 9th September, and tea and cake available on the afternoons of  Sunday 9th and 16th September.

Rector, Canon David Hodgson said: “I’m thrilled that we are taking part in these Heritage Open Days this year. It’s a historic year nationally as we recall the achieving of votes for women 100 years ago; and also a historic moment for this church building, as we launch our  exciting plans for changes to make the building more open, more accessible and more inspiring for the whole community.”
