Fundraising Committee Report for Sunday 23rd June 2019

Railway Swing Band – Wednesday 26th June

Tickets for the Railway Swing Band concert have sold well over the past couple of weeks and there are not many left now and the Community Hall has a capacity limit. If the hall fills up, you or your friends or relatives might be disappointed.  I will be selling tickets at Sunday’s church service, so you will be able to buy yours then, or else you can book them by calling at the Parish office in Hopeville Avenue or by ringing on 01843 866061. The tickets are only £10.00 each. The doors open at 7.00pm and the concert starts at 7.30pm, running until 10.00pm with a short interval during which refreshments, including wine, will be available, so please reserve the date in your diary. The band recently sent us their programme for the evening and it looks amazing, so it should be a wonderful evening. I do hope that you can be there.

Several people have already offered their services to help ‘on the night’. If you would like to assist, I will be holding a short meeting at the back of the church for all helpers after Sunday’s service, so please meet me there then. I’ll be very glad to see you.

Summer `fete Request
