Christmas is coming

Christmas is coming

Our Bring and Buy sale certainly proved that Christmas is just around the corner… Such a lot of planning and work went into setting up our first sale for nearly two years, an event that was friendly, casual but Covid safe. The stalls were arranged around St Leonard’s Hall while in the church there was a book sale, a display of church stones, plus refreshments and soup lunches… There was a cake stall, a greetings card stall, toys and bric-a-brac plus a Christmas stall all set up in the hall. At this mornings Family Service, Revd Carolyn thanked all those people who helped with our first real cash-raising event. A special thanks went to Trudy who did all the planning, organising and a lot of the work – Revd Carolyn was delighted to say that they had raised almost £600.00 and said that she would be leaving a lot of the Christmas items around the hall so that you could go on buying if you wished… It was a lot of work but very enjoyable for all. Thank you everyone… The latest figure raised is £675,00. Wow! Let's keep it coming... and there are still items to be bought if you wish, money to be put in the honesty box - Many thanks - Joan
