Treasure Hunt at the Fete - We are introducing a treasure hunt to encourage visitors to this year’s church fete to come into the church, exploring the beautiful interior to hunt for clues.

Books for the Fete - Andrew & Julia GL would be very pleased to receive any books you might want to give to the Fete Bookstall. To minimise the carrying of heavy books around, please do not put them in the Church, but just contact us and we can come and collect them at your convenience.  If leaving a message, or on email,  please leave your name, phone, address and POSTCODE so we can find you (contact details on pew sheet in church). I assure you that no permanent record of your contact details will be kept once we have collected from you.   Many thanks. Andrew GL
