Summer Fete 2017

Saturday 24 June 2017

Our annual summer community event drew a lot of people eager to enjoy the various games, stalls and attractions. In the church was ‘Pop Goes the Organ’ – sponsored popular songs played on the organ – while in the parish centre there were afternoon teas and a chance to sit and rest out of the sun. The main event took place out on the church green, with a display of Irish dancing, classic cars, model boats, NSB band, a saxophone busker, magician, bouncy castle, sponsored wet-sponge stocks, and plenty of opportunity to spend pocket money on the various games for the children and hard-earned cash on the stalls for the adults. The afternoon culminated in the Raffle with its vast array of prizes, and to finish off, a communal tug of war.

Whilst one of our major fund-raising events for the church, for St Matthew’s folk it was, as always, a wonderful opportunity to meet and chat with the families and individuals that came along, some of whom might not normally come to the church itself.
