In an effort to encourage young people into church and to take an interest in the heritage of Carbrooke, we have created a Teddy Trail, to tell the story of Carbrooke and its people. Members of the community, have provided the teddies.
For several years the church arranged a ‘Parachuting Teddies’ event. People were invited to bring their teddies and enrol them to parachute from the top of the church tower. Its a long way down for a teddy! Some teddies decided to investigate the tower walls on their way down, and one decided to fly off in the wrong direction, getting caught in a tree, but most of them behaved themselves. The one who travelled the furthest was the winner.
In 2014 the teddies zip wired from the ringing chamber inside the church instead.
