Trio Treats Concert Thanks

Many thanks to those folks who came and supported the Trio Treats concert last Saturday, a profit of £315 was made. 
We are extremely grateful to John, Jean, Sarah and Colin who gave their time and talents to help raise much needed funds for our Parish.

St. James Patronal Festival thanks

St. James Patronal Sunday 21st July – Many thanks to everyone who came and supported our Patronal Festival afternoon.

It was another hot and sunny day and if you had the energy to climb to the top of the tower then your efforts were much rewarded.   Thank you so much to the folks who cooked the lovely scones and cakes, served the teas and helped on the stalls.  

A profit of £695 was raised for general church funds.  The social and fund-raising committee are now putting their feet up until we start again in September and we look forward to seeing you all for the Trio Treats Concert on 21st September.

Church Fete result

Thanks to everyone who helped in any way with the Church Fete on Saturday 13th July (organisers, car park attendants, stall holders, tent erectors, sponsors, grand draw ticket purchasers, spenders on the day, silent auction winners, set-up and pack-up team – EVERYONE!) 

We had a splendid, sunny, happy event and have raised just over £4550 for church funds.   A good outcome to a lovely day.  Thank you all.
