There are strong links between church and school, with services held in both school and church. Assemblies are taken fortnightly, and a service of Holy Communion once a term. A number of church members are Governors at the school. The Five Parishes fund the gift of a Bible for all new pupils from year 2 upwards. To keep abreast of the School’s activities, go to their website www.greateastonprimary.co.uk
This popular Show was historically held by the Countess of Warwick, a former local landowner. It has been revived and is now held annually over the August Bank Holiday. This is the main fundraising event of the year in aid of church funds. From the shows held over several years the churches each received between £3,000 and £5,000 for some expensive restoration work. In 2016 and 2017, however, the churches shared an amazing £36,000 and are extremely grateful to the Show Committee for all their work throughout the year.
The Show is held at Little Easton on Sunday/Bank Holiday Monday in August each year. Details of entries for the various sections together with photographs from previous Shows can be found on its dedicated website www.countessofwarwickshow.org
