overnight rain, thunderstorms and lightening, the sun
shone brilliantly on our Summer Fete and we were able to
enjoy this annual community event outside on the church
green. As ever, we had a rich variety of stalls and
games, balloon-making and a magician’s show, a bouncy
castle, a classic cars display, ice creams from the van,
and if you wanted to be somewhere a bit cooler, organ
recitals in the church and afternoon tea in the parish
centre – in fact plenty to entertain all ages!
Whilst one of our major fund-raising events for the
church, for St Matthew’s folk it was, as always, a
opportunity to meet and chat with the families and
individuals that came along, some of whom might not
normally come to the church itself.
