Our annual fair took place between 10.00am and 12 noon on 29 October at the St Andrew’s Centre. It was opened by Fr James who gave his support throughout the morning as well as supplying small bunches of lavender from his garden which sold well. There was the usual array of secondhand books for sale, local crafts, bric-a-brac, plants, cakes and preserves.
The Mothers’ Union supplied a wonderful hamper as the prize on their ’square raffle’ board and the Grand Draw raffle attracted much interest and a variety of prizes were won. The tombola stall was busy all morning with those taking part hoping to find the elusive raffle tickets ending in either a zero or a five.
Refreshments were enjoyed by many having completed their shopping. Overall the fair raised £1205 for church funds.
