Those of you who have been following my blog for a while will have become familiar with the square mile of northern England that is the World Heritage Site of Saltaire. I have covered most aspects over the two years I've been blogging, so I can't show you much that is new. You've seen this bandstand in Roberts Park before - not the original Victorian one, which was demolished years ago, but the new one that was introduced when the park was refurbished in 2010.
What you won't have seen before is this choir: it's the choir and music group from my church, St Peter's in Shipley, who filled the regular 'Sunday Concert in the Park' slot this afternoon, along with a local band called 'Hot Aire'. It's been a glorious day, bright sunshine and pleasantly warm, so the park was full of people strolling and sitting. I think most enjoyed the music, which was a mixture of traditional hymns and modern worship songs. I'm sure Sir Titus Salt, staunch Christian that he was, would have been delighted to hear godly praise in his park on a Sunday afternoon. Well done, St Peter's folk!
