This year for the first time, St Paul's held its own Summer Fair. Both the Church Hall and the church building were involved to provide more space. Two competitions for children were organised: 'how many different things can you get in a matchbox' and 'veggie beasts'. Although the number of entries were small, the standards were high; the winning matchbox had 180 different items in it. Mrs Nancy Bird of Quarndon Hall very kindly agred to judge the competitions - not an easy task - thank you Nancy.
Using ths church meant we were able to show some information about the church, including a number of photos from the 1990's, and a convivial area at the back of church for tea, coffee, cake and chat (very busy throughout the afternoon).
Many thanks to all who took part, manning stalls or just coming along, and a very big thank you to everyone who donated gifts, especially the very generous raffle prizes, the laden bottle stall and the great Teddy Tombola. Also a heartfelt thank you to the Curzon School recorder group who entertained us with a recital.
The event raised a very much needed £835 for church funds as well as being a very enjoyable community event.
