We held our Summer Fair this year in July 2014 and we were thankful that the day was blessed with beautiful sunshine.  We were able to ‘spread out’ in our church grounds and enjoy both the lovely weather and the wonderful people who attended our fair.

We held a bottle tombola which was one of our most popular stalls as always and we also had a chocolate tombola which both ‘sold out’!

Our cake stall was bigger and better than ever and we have some wonderful cooks who happily bake for us each year and produce some marvellous treats for us to all enjoy.  There was a tremendous array of cakes and a choice available for everyone.

This year we were also lucky enough to have a display from Greenfields School on show which showcased the great work they’ve been doing this year.  It was great to see the work of these talented children and thank you to everyone involved for letting us join in this great work.  It’s lovely when our church and local community can all be involved together.

There were many things on offer for children this year too.  We had a bouncy castle, face painting, teddy bears picnic and children’s raffle all based in the vicarage garden.  This enabled the children to run around and enjoy their own space without feeling too inhibited by too many grown ups.  The ice cream man who was on site was a welcome addition too!  I did see the vicar make two trips to the van (but don’t tell him I told you!)

We had a lovely choice of food on offer too and the ladies in the kitchen did a sterling job of serving teas, coffees and afternoon teas.

As always the atmosphere was brilliant and it would be wonderful to see even more of the local community joining in with our next fair.  Look at our ‘future events’ page to see what’s coming up and please join us and enjoy our church community spirit.
