Photos from Pete's sponsored flight in a glider

Well ... he only went and did it!

With the glorious sunshine beating down on Burn airfield, Pete strapped into his parachute and was up, up and away before we knew it.

Words Of Encouragement

In preparation for Pete's flight Canon Gwynne Richardson has penned a few words

Our Rector Pete is flying high
A gliding in blue yonder;
He's soaring through the Yorkshire sky
Within a world of wonder.

He swoops and dives throughout the day
And gazes in amazement,
Beholding darling buds of May
In colourful arrangement.

Then into fluffy clouds he flies
And sees a ghostly figure
That gives him such a big surprise -
It looks like Selby's vicar!

The apparition fades away
Much to Pete's great relief.
A luscious smell of new mown hay
Rises from the earth beneath.

It is the time for Pete to end
Wand'ring in sky so blue;
And as the plane starts its descent
The church hall comes in view.

For God our Pete has this day flown
To help us in our need!
And now another kind of hymn
To praise his sponsored deed.

There's a Spirit in the air
That's wafted Pete here and there.
Thank you Lord for all he's done
So our hearts for you are won!

And our brass to you will come
