THE Church of the Holy Cross in the heart of Crediton is one of the town’s treasures and part of our local heritage.

To celebrate this treasure, an exhibition, highlighted with flowers, to celebrate and show off the many interesting features and artefacts in this historic church, will take place in Crediton Parish Church from 10am to 5pm from Friday, May 31 to Saturday, June 1 and on Sunday, June 2 from 11am to 5pm.

Some of the items on display are not usually on public display so this is a great opportunity to view them.

Anne Jerman explained: “Visit and see the fine architecture at Crediton Parish Church and learn about its history through its stained glass, woodcarvings, sculpture and colourful vestments, its treasured 17th Century church silver and long music tradition.

“Take the challenge to find our Green Man!

“Enjoy the peaceful churchyard - now being recreated into a green community space.

“Enjoy a cream tea in the nearby Boniface Centre Café where light refreshments of coffee/tea/sandwiches/cakes/cream teas will be served from 10am to 4pm on May 31 and June 1 and from 2pm to 4pm on June 2.”

Anne added that the Church Shop and Bric-a-Brac stalls will be open, that there will be Free Parking, Disabled Access and Free Admission.
