summer fair raffle

Summer Fair 2019

This year our very popular Summer Fair will be on Saturday 1st June. The venue is St John’s Church Hall, Bury, BL9 6NY.

Opening time is 11am and we’re normally done, one way or another (!), by 2pm.

So, to avoid missing out on that special pre-loved book, toy or jigsaw please come early. There will also be a plant stall, bric-a-brac, tombolas, games, cakes and lunches.

And yes, a raffle… We can’t guarantee that all of the illustrated items will be available but we can be pretty sure a scented candle will be amongst them.

We’d love to see you there! We’re also looking for help running some of the stalls. If you’re interested please us know via the contact page.

Thanks again to Dave Walker for letting us use his cartoons (for a small consideration). This one originally appeared in the Church Times and can be found in the book How to Avoid the Peace, published by Canterbury Press. For Dave’s website please follow this link.

  1. Many thanks to all who came along and to all who helped. We raised just over £1250. Events such as these enable us to donate at least 10% of our regular Sunday and monthly giving to charitable causes.
