25 Jun

     Reverend Matthew Lawson held another lovely Clopton Rose Ceremony as a meaningful part of his service on 25 Jun 2023.  Because of his efforts and those of Richard Michette and other members of the Friends of Long Melford, the ‘one red rose rental’ - paid annually by the village of Hadleigh to the Clopton family - is alive and well, with Hadleigh’s Mayor offering not only the Rose due to and placed upon the effigy of our ancestor but a meaningful sentiment, as well.   

     The full service and Rose Ceremony are viewable on our Clopton Family Association Facebook page as well as on the Facebook page of Holy Trinity Church, Long Melford.
