Heritage Weekend

Heritage Open Days is your chance to visit free thousands of buildings and places across England which are usually closed to the public or charge admission.  To find out what‘s on in this area go to www.heritageopendays.org.uk.  An excellent leaflet, produced by The Kingston upon Thames Society, is available in church or in local libraries, giving details of the 32 sites open in Kingston. 
  St. John's will be taking part in this event, with Pat Lovegrove and her welcoming band of stewards at the Church to meet and greet visitors at the following times

Thursday 6th and Friday 7th:  11.00am – 4.00pm
Saturday 8th:  10.00am – 5.00pm Sunday 9th:  2.00pm – 5.00pm
(Refreshments will be available for weary travellers!) 

On Sunday 9th there will also be a Heritage Walk at 2.00pm from St. John’s.  This will be a 1.5km exploration of the Domesday village of Malden and its ancient meadows putting it into historical context.  Hear about its connection with Merton College Oxford; see where the artist Sir John Millais painted the background to Ophelia.
