May Market fundraiser

Home » News » May Market

Please do come along to this church fundraising event and bring your family and friends too. There will be plenty to buy or you can just enjoy the refreshments.
John Cresswell will be running the plant stall (a major feature of this event) and would welcome contributions of home-grown plants.

Brenda Milam will be running the fancy goods stall and would welcome donations of goods in advance, so she has time to price them. Do you have any presents which you have put aside but are just what someone else would like?

Helen and Eric Smith have valiantly agreed to run the book stall again, so do look out those thrillers you bought last year and won't read again and we'll happily recycle them! Helen is happy to collect books in advance.

Kate Wilson and Sonja Williams will be running the cake stall and will welcome contributions of home-baking.

Judy Nicholls is putting together a team to provide the ever-popular refreshments.

As usual, the various rooms at church are in use most days and this year the Boys' Brigade Annual Display will be taking place on the evening of Friday 11th May so all space will be in use that evening! We will be setting up for the fair after the display, but that will be 9.30pm or later so it would be better to bring most goods on the Saturday morning from 9am. Cakes may be left in the main kitchen on Friday. Please wrap well and label 'for May Market'. If you would like goods collected in advance, please contact the stall-holder or me.
Volunteers to help with the clearing up (at noon on Saturday) would be very welcome.
