The Strawberry Fair is a longstanding traditional event organised by the parish for the parish and the wider community. We have fun events provided for all the family. It is also a major contributor to parish funds.
We rely heavily on our stall-holders who help each year to make this event so successful.
The Johnson hall will be open on the previous Friday 3rd July from 1pm to receive donations. Welcome are books, clothes, toys, baking, raffle prizes, drinks, white elephant goods, bric a brac etc. for each of the stalls.
The event is a curious and excellent mix of games from your childhood (go fish, putting, bouncy castle, table tennis, rings, penalty shots etc), gourmet and other delicious food (strawberries and ice-cream, hot dogs, cakes and bakes, sweets), raffles of all varieties, music (popular and jazz), stalls (for books, white elephant, good as new clothes, toys, jewellery and ornaments) and a general overflow of humour, goodwill, bonhomie and kindness all round.
Please come along and join the fun and support our big day.
Hours of opening 8am to 3pm. Parishioners have been very kind and helpful in offering support to staff the kitchen in All Saints' Hall and to act as stewards on the day of the car boot. We are optimistic that we can continue the past success of the car boots as an additional source of revenue to help replenish parish funds.
As well as being a fundraiser for the parish, we have used the opportunity of the car boots as a means of outreach to the wider community and have endeavoured to open the church to visitors on each car boot Saturday.
