Well Dressing 2017 - Vicar & Board for webOn Saturday 27th May we took part in Frome’s well dressing procession and ceremony where a beautiful plaque decorated by pupils in Eagles, Owls and Kestrels joined those produced by other Frome schools to decorate the town’s well as part of an outdoor ceremony to remember St Aldhelm’s life and work and to bless the well that is fed from springs in the vicinity of St. John’s Church.

The theme for this year’s well dressing panels was ‘Reformation 500: Communication, Technology and Faith’.

The artwork was displayed to perfection among flowers that glistened with water droplets from the well. Thank you to pupils, parents and staff who came along to celebrate the children’s work and to mark an important aspect of Frome’s history.
