Blessing of The Herrings Service – October 2019

The weather was bright and sunny for the 3pm annual Blessing of the Herrings Service on Sunday 27th October 19 . Sharon Lord gave a lovely Service of thanksgiving, hymns and prayers for safety of all those on the sea before blessing the herrings.

The skipper and crew of The Blue Eagle and the landlord of The Oddfellows donated proceeds of their catch that week to Pakefield Church and raised a total of £220 for Church Funds! It was much appreciated and many thanks are given to the fishermen along with the landlord and customers of The Oddfellows.
