The Sanctuary in the 1960s

Ed Zanders has sent us this picture of the sanctuary at St Jude's by his mother Beth Zanders from a sketchbook she made in the 1960s. Ed lived on the Suburb from 1954 to 1969 and was a server at St Jude's. His A Suburb Childhood is a personal memoir of those days.

Autumn Walk 2012

St Jude’s Autumn Walk
Saturday 13 October 2012

For the fourth year running St Jude’s invites you to bring your families, friends and dogs if you would like to discover green and secluded paths through North London’s parks and woodland in autumn sunshine. We hope that this six-mile sponsored walk, almost entirely away from roads, will raise as much as possible for the St Jude’s central heating appeal fund. This year we are going back to the route that we followed in 2009 and 2010, starting at St Jude’s and finishing in Finsbury Park (return from Manor House underground station or by 210 bus). If you were not able to do the previous walks, come this time and find out what you were missing. Each of these walks was great fun and a happy social occasion.
The proceeds of the walk will go as before to the central heating appeal fund, which now stands at about £27,000. We intend to renovate all the radiators, renew the 100-years-old pipework and extend it by adding grilles in the floor to disperse heat more efficiently. We hope that grant-giving bodies will be able to match the funds we have raised.
Make a note of the date in your diaries now. If you do not wish to walk, please consider sponsoring one of the walkers.  Adult walkers will be asked to raise a minimum of £25 in sponsorship.
