The Flying Goose
The Flying Goose is a newsletter published quarterly in March, June, September and December by St Peter’s Church. It is delivered free to 3,000 homes in the parish and ward of Wolvercote and is intended to be a resource for local community groups to let others know about their news and events. Copies are available at the back of church. To read the current issue (September 2012) go to Flying Goose.
We called it the Flying Goose partly because Wolvercote has a long connection with geese being kept on Port Meadow and Goose Green, partly because in Celtic Christianity the goose is a symbol of the Holy Spirit, and partly because geese flying in V formation are a good image of community co-operation: flying in a V, geese can travel up to 70% further than any single goose on its own; each goose takes a turn as the leader whilst the others honk encouragement from behind! It also made the editorial team smile!
