Ground Breaking Ceremony at Strawberry Field

St Peter’s Church has supported the redevelopment at Strawberry Field from the very beginning of the project, and it was a privilege to attend the formal Ground Breaking ceremony today (July 31).

Major Roger Batt, Lady Judy Martin, Julia Baird and Cliff Cooper cutting the celebration cake at today’s Ground Breaking ceremony.

Julia Baird, Honorary President of the Strawberry Field project, and Lady Judy Martin and Cliff Cooper, project patrons, led the celebrations, with the legendary Mike McCartney capturing the event for posterity with his trusty Nikon camera!

Although not in Mike’s league, some of our photos from today’s ceremony can be seen below:
