This is to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who came to help on Saturday 24th November at the Christmas Bazaar.
It was a success even though we were competing with St Pauls Bazaar as well. The turn out was pretty good and we are sure that most of those who came enjoyed it.
A special word of thanks goes to the following – Pennie who helped on the Brownie stall also Ola who was stuck behind the plants for a while and both Esther and Rebecca who got landed with ‘How many sweets in the Jar’ and the ‘lolly’ games. The Rainbows had a ‘Sweetie tombola’ which in the absence of their leader Anne was run by her helper Mary and Mary’s daughter.
Allister & Julie came and brought a new game with them and of course the ‘Face Painting’ was run by Diana and Sara – the kids looked lovely with their amazing designs. The Friendship club ran a ‘TINBOLA’ stall where tins of food were the prizes and the Women’s club had all sorts on theirs.
The Deacons stall was in the charge of Tony and had some lovely toys for sale. Scouts ran the Book Stall and the Refreshments had a selection of helpers which included Roger & Clare.
The stall which attracted most people was the beautiful cakes that Pauline (Guide Captain) had made they were all a work of art.
Now that this is over, we can all settle down to enjoy our Festivities.
Thanks, from the FACC Committee
Anne, Sara, Lynda & Val
Christmas Bazaar 2018
Saturday 24th November the church was open for our annual Christmas Bazaar. Lots of stalls with festive themes. Pauline’s cake stall was amazing as usual - worthy of Fortnum and Mason’s windows. The Sweetie and (full) Tin Tombolas were also very popular. Diana painted some breath-taking festive faces. Seasonal wreaths and hyacinth pots added to the atmosphere. Lots of people passed through the church, and it was good to catch up with friends, old and new.
But a huge thank you should go to those who helped with the set up and organisation.
Anne was away, and Sara’s work meant she was not there to help either. So, a huge amount of work was left to Val, Lynda and Roger. It could not, and would not have happened without them; and, of course all the lovely people who manned and set up their own stalls.
Annie Skinner would also like to say a huge thank you to all those who helped her towards her Guide trip to Budapest, especially Pauline! She raised a fantastic £36!
Wishing you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
