A Message from Littleport Christian Spiritualists

A Message from Littleport Christian Spiritualists

One of the first lessons I learnt as a Spiritualist, over 21 years ago, was the simple principle that our way of life should make itself open and available to all.

Littleport Library – Wednesdays at 1.30 are for young children!

I’ve always been mad on books, and when I was young I was a regular visitor to the library.

Littleport – A village with a lot to offer!

Littleport is a village that is not only the largest square mileage in England, but it must have the largest concentration of industrious and useful people too! So many who run businesses offering goods and services of all kinds that it would take one of those old-fashioned directories to list and describe them all! But we just have a little space in which to mention a couple or three for your interest. And to give…

Of course, a number go back to the shirt and mac factories but a lot did work on the…
