Church Fete


The Church Fete on 2nd July was a great success. The weather was perfect and it was good to see so many people enjoying themselves. Thank you to all who came along.

The profit, after expenses, came to £5413. This is the church’s major fund-raising event of the year and makes a vital contribution to the running costs of the church.
