Sarah Royal took this photograph of lightening as a thunderstorm passed over Felmersham in the early hours of Friday 18th July 2014. During the day the temperature soared to 29 degrees C. 



An open air Holy Communion service was held at Hall Farm, Radwell on Sunday 20th July 2014. Prior to the Reformation, and probably later, Radwell had a church dedicated to St James possibly on the site of the barn in the background. However by 1608 services were no longer held in the church. The Feast of St James the Apostle is on 25 July. More info in Felmersham - The History of a Riverside Parish pages 81 - 84 and pages 108, 109. The photograph shows the Revd. Thomas Sander (centre) and Revd. Robert Evens.
