“Even bigger, even better”
The Fete committee members have started to plan this year’s summer fete.
The purpose of the Fete is twofold: to raise much needed funds, but first and foremost to reinforce the presence of the church within the town.
Nearer the time we will be asking you for bottles for the bottle stall, raffle prizes, cakes, bric a brac etc., so please start putting things aside now.
