The Christmas Fayre was opened by David Bawler, recently retired Churchwarden, who was presented with a buttonhole by Isabelle Cole. The fayre, in conjunction with Culm Davy Chapel, was held at Hemyock parish hall, and raised over £1309.
The hall was festooned with coloured lights, decorated stalls and Santa’s grotto. Amongst the many stalls could be found a wealth of festive gifts along with cakes, preserves, raffles, books, toys, face painting and games. Mulled wine, teas, mince pies and Advent biscuits was enjoyed by many of the large crowd who attended.
Father Christmas’ arrival was announced with bells and Ron White provided seasonal piano accordion music throughout the afternoon and later accompanied carol singing as the fair closed.Over £864 was made by the church with a further £445 by Culm Davy Chapel.
