The Christmas Fayre
This celebration has a very long history in St Thomas parish. For many years it happened in the Hawkey Hall followed by a Turkey Bingo in the evening. Times change the detail. I think none of the many past Fayres could compete with the lovely atmosphere of joy, sharing and generosity of last Saturday. I want to thank you all very sincerely.
The preparations began weeks ago. No twisting of arms was needed to draw a considerable group of organises. You gave much time, your talents and huge generosity to provide everything needed. The children enjoyed snow without the rest of us having to trudge through the mess of a real freeze.
I know so many are wondering how on earth we shall meet all the bills, yet your generosity was phenomenal. To all who came my thanks. God is surely blessing you as you take care of and build our parish family.
