In recognition of the importance of each seasons lambs to the community of Swaledale St. Andrew’s Grinton recently held a Service of Thanksgiving for the Harvest of Lambs at a local farm.

The Revd. Caroline Hewlett, Vicar of Swaledale with Arkengarthdale told Premier “We used to have an autumn Harvest Festival in each church, and the one at Grinton was the least well attended, and never really got established. So we decided to have a Lambing Service instead, to reflect that we don’t ‘plough the fields and scatter’ in Swaledale, but that the lambs are the ‘crop’ in this area.”

The Lambing Service was held in a barn at Cogden Hall Farm, Grinton, overlooking the beautiful dale of Swaledale and the music was provided by Reeth Brass Band.

Premiers Northern Correspondent Ian Britton put on his wellies for a trip up the dales and filed this report.
