Garden Party – St John’s 13th July


This year’s theme is ‘To the Manor Born’, so we are asking as many of our churches family as possible to get into the spirit by donning Bow Ties & Tiaras. So, come on Gents, root through your wardrobe for that dashing bow tie or even a cravat, and wear it with panache. Ladies, dig out that family heirloom, maybe the tiara you haven’t worn since your wedding, or go grab yourself a bargain on eBay! There may even be prizes for stylish & refined creations! There will be all the usual stalls & attractions for the family, and of course, the Bouncy Castle for the little lords & ladies among us. There are boxes at the back of church for donations to the Raffle and Tombola. If every family could contribute one or two items, then we will have more than enough to keep us going. Bottles of shampoo, wine, olive oil, or that very expensive and elegant Dior perfume will all be gratefully received.

All offers of help, to set up, join the refreshments team, run a stall, as well as clearing up afterwards, should be directed to Sue Heapy on either 567110 or 07540 355 305.

Thank you.

Bookstall July 13th
