The 2015 Church Fête

Make sure you put the date in your diary ...




Saturday 16th May 2015


Con you spare a little of your time? There are loads of exciting things planned this year for the whole family but we need some helpers!


We are especially looking for new people to get involved - it's a great way of getting to know folk in the village.


If you can help out on one of the stalls on the day, even just for an hour, or make any kind of contribution, phone

Lucilla Carr on 01794 34081 or Julie Neilson on 01794 340850.


We are also collecting donations for the raffle, tombola, silent auction, bottle stall, and this year we are also looking for any vintage housewares, soft toys and books etc so please have a rummage through your cupboards for any good quality unwanted items that can go to a very worthy cause.
