Alton Webteam: October 2017
I hope to be doing my usual stall of Christmas baskets this year at the Christmas Fair 25th November.
I would be very pleased to have any baskets to fill — big or small! They can be left in the church office or in the foyer or I will be happy to come and collect (call 84739)
I would also be pleased to have any contributions to go in the baskets! These can be almost anything — smellies, tins of soup, unwanted gifts, chocolates etc. I can find a use for most things!
