Hawaiian summer fete: June 27th

Flags flying, grass skirts and floral garlands? It could only be St Laurence's Hawaiian Summer fete!

Saturday 27th June, the sun shone, allowing us once again to hold our summer fete outside in front of the church.


Helpers arrived early on the Saturday morning to set up gazebos and tables and by midday we were ready with a range of stalls to welcome people in. We had a tombola, raffle, jewellery, plants, bric-a-brac, homemade crafts and chutneys, toys, books and cakes. There was an area especially for children to sit and enjoy being creative and we served hotdogs, burgers, afternoon cream teas and ice-creams to those who were hungry. 

The ‘Aching Arms Puppet Team’ and ‘Melody Blue’ kept us entertained during the afternoon, with music, song and dance from the puppets and a range of songs from Melody Blue.


Everyone seemed to have a good time; there were lots of people chatting and plenty of smiling faces. Well, almost everyone…one person did get a little wet…all in the name of fundraising!


We raised a fantastic sum £1000! Many thanks to all who cam and supported the event and all who worked so hard for it.
