Helping preserve our historic church for future generations

Christmas Tree Festival - An Amazing Success!!!?

Over the weekend of 4th/5th December the Friends participated fully by providing the refreshments in what turned out to be the most successful festival held in our village church. Raising a total of £6,000, the refreshments alone contributed £1,100 providing teas/coffees and cakes to the 1,100 visitors over the weekend.
Our members, alongside many other volunteers ,contributed by supplying home made cakes or helping out by manning the stall over the two days and our Christmas tree entry decorated with the theme of "doors" - to reflect the forthcoming restoration of the main door to the church, looked truly amazing. In total there were 23 trees entered and these can be seen on the village website www.findonvillage.org on the Pictures page, or by clicking here. They're certainly worth a look at.
