Would you please consider donating unwanted Christmas gifts for the fairs?

Would any budding artists or people with needlecraft, woodwork, confectionery skills etc. consider making items to sell at the fairs?

We raised over £1000 in 2012 and had a lovely day.

Please join in, any help is appreciated and of infinitely more use than criticism!

Would anyone like to organise a Greek/Romanian/Russian/Arabic evening with food, music and entertainment?

It could be a wonderful social evening and raise funds for the Parish.

Would you please contact one of the Trustees if you can offer any help towards events:
