rain on Friday 14 December affected the numbers of folk
who turned out for our annual Christmas Fayre, but those
who did found plenty to entertain them, adults and
Hot food and drink, games and gifts, tombola, raffle and
a cake auction were all on offer at the stalls in the
side aisles. Father Christmas took time out of his busy
schedule to make a flying visit to see the children, and
Steve the Balloon Modeller was kept busy making bespoke
balloons – then the children had great fun testing out
how high their balloons would float above the warm air
vents at the front of the nave.
the evening musical entertainment was provided by
Moulton 77 Brass Band with
St Matthew’s Church Choir leading the carol singing. The
evening ended with a Christmas reading, a prayer and
blessing, and the happy faces leaving showed that they
were glad they’d turned out.
The Fayre, whilst being one of our major fundraising
events, is primarily an opportunity for us at
St Matthew’s to welcome in, and enjoy the company of,
the wider Kingsley community, many of whom would not
ordinarily come to St Matthew’s, in an informal and
relaxed party atmosphere.
