May Fair 2019

an amazing day - may fair 2019

Our May Fair 2019 was an amazing success and we just want to say a big thank you to EVERYONE who either worked on the Fair or came along and supported our event, on a rather cold May day.

It was great to see so many of our local community, of all ages, enjoying the event. For our younger guests there was face painting, a Punch and Judy show, balloon art and activities organised for the younger and older age groups.

For the adults a variety of stalls, raffles and tombolas. Along with a plentiful supply of refreshments.

Wyke Primary School were proud to display plates their pupils had decorated for the paper plate competition and many enjoyed the Dog Show run by Chimney Farm International Dog Rescue.

Please find to follow some photographs taken at the event to give you a snapshot of the day. Figures just coming in show we have raised over £3000, which really is an impressive amount and will go towards the running of our beautiful Church. Once again a very big thank you.

request for unwanted items please

If you've been having a spring clear out over the Easter break and have some good quality unwanted items anything from shampoo to champagne, we would be very grateful for them for our May Fair. Any unused new items would be good for our tombola or second hand children's toys or clothes would be great for our Pre-loved stall. Please drop items off in Church on a Sunday or at our Parish Office in the Church Hall or call 01483 811777. Many thanks.
