CRAFT FAIR 2013

 CRAFT FAIR

                     Saturday October 5th 

                                         11. 00am – 3pm

                         What a wonderful day we all enjoyed!

The Scouts and Explorer Scouts together with a few experienced helpers prepared the room by moving furniture, erecting tables, decorating stalls and carrying boxes of donated goods from the balcony to the appropriate stalls.

Eleven crafters arrived on Saturday morning to set out their wonderful arrays of hand-made products and together with the Church stalls of jams, cakes, gifts, a Pound Stall and a Raffle, the room looked splendidly festive.

Teams of people worked all day in the kitchen to serve  bacon butties, pork baps, home-made soup and cream teas which were all absolutely delicious.

The Fair opened at 11 o’clock and throughout the day there was a splendid, friendly atmosphere which helped to make the day a huge success.

At the end of the afternoon a wonderful group of people helped in the clearing of the room, the dismantling of the stalls and the setting out of the furniture ready for the Sunday Service.

The wonderful sum of £1422.38 was raised in just 4 hours!

Well done everyone!

 

A NIGHT AT THE MOVIES

 

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

What a fantastic night we all  enjoyed! Margaret Height and many members of her family together with Malcolm Hayes gave superb renderings of tunes from well-known movies. This family are multi-talented and each member played a variety of instruments and sang in a wonderful concert that had members of the audience dancing in the aisles!

Each item was introduced by a member of the group who gave a resumé of the movie,  the name of the Director and the stars in the  film.  Clips from the film were shown on the big screen whilst the music was performed.

Music from Toy Story, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, James Bond, From Russia with Love, You Only Live Twice and Moon River was included in the performance which lasted two hours.

This was an excellent and enjoyable evening and £409.50 for the Church’s Mission Fund was given in donations by the audience.
