£900 raised at Autumn Craft Fair

We tried something a bit different for this year's Autumn Fair. All the old favourites were there - the cake stall, the plant stall, a Lucky Dip, Olive's raffle - but we also invited a number of new organisations to take part, so visitors were able to browse around bags and scarves, hand-made cards, embroidery, vintage clothing, Aloe Vera products, beeswax candles and drawings of local scenes. Refreshments were available all day, and the King's Head opposite offered a special £5 lunch menu for the event. Entertainment was also on offer for our younger visitors - face-painting proved very popular, and "Bat the Rat" provided a definite challenge! (Only two came away with badges proclaiming that they'd "batted the rat"!)

A total of over £900 was raised for the church, which is a splendid result. Many thanks to all who helped.

After a visit to "Little Dragons" face-painters!

We thoroughly enjoyed it and are please with the amount raised. Thumbs up for next year! Little Dragons Face Painters

Well done for an excellent fair, very well organised and a very enjoyable occasion. One of the best fairs I have been to. It was a very profitable fair for me, but not only that the people were so friendly and a very beautiful church to be in. I hope to be invited next time. Liz Place (Femme Fatale)
