Ellastone Family Fun Fest - What a fabulous event it was!

Balloon Popping

Balloon Popping

Much fun was had by all & the sun shone. Many thanks to all the organisers for their hard work and to the Keays family for the use of their beautiful gardens.

The event raised £1800 and the money is to be split between the Parish Hall, the Church and funding the installation of the new village defibrillator.

In 1914, the Vicar, Edward Hornby Birley, had already been Vicar of Ellastone & Stanton for thirty nine years.  He married in 1874 and came to the parish in 1875.  Their son, Hugh Digby Birley (born 1876), succeeded him as vicar, when E H Birley retired in 1916.  The Vicar had a sister Miss Birley, who took part in village affairs and was a keen photographer. She took photographs of Ellastone and its environs in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and these are available to view at Stafford Record Office, as are the church magazines for 1913-1919.

The Adam Bede Walk

A delightful booklet on the Adam Bede Walk has been produced by Ed Barker. If you wish to do the walk it will be invaluable to you, with lots of information about the route, but also about George Eliot’s book and its characters.
Even if you are not walking, it is a lovely booklet to have with excellent photographs.
We are very grateful to Ed.
The booklets are available in Ellastone Church porch (suggested donation £2).
