First of all, a huge thank you to all who contributed to the Summer Fete in each and every way. We raised a grand total of £2,824.22 including the Silent Auction. The Pimms, BBQ and Cream Teas were all a great success and added to the atmosphere, as did the various games and Juggling Clown. The stalls were kept busy and were enjoyed by young and old. We are most grateful to Johnnie and Philip for opening their garden to us for this event on a beautiful sunny afternoon.
The church remains open every day for quiet contemplation and the Book Swop is available. Don’t forget that we are still collecting for the Banbury and Daventry Food Banks.
We do hope that you will be able to join us for Harvest Festival on 29th September at 5 pm followed by an Auction of Produce.
Please note that there is a different service pattern in August to allow for holidays.
Don’t miss the Summer Fete – Saturday 22nd June at the Old Rectory. Starting at 1 pm with BBQ and Pimms. All the usual stalls plus a few surprises and our delicious Cream Teas. Watch out for the flyers and information about the Silent Auction.
Remember that the Church is open every day for quiet contemplation and don’t forget about the Book Swop.
