Flowton Fete – thank you

Many many thanks to all who came and supported the Flowton Fete on 16th July. We only had a light shower this year (last year was a 2 hour downpour!) but we were well prepared. We had an amazing live band to support us, and some great games – the ladder game even required a throw off between John Prentice and Derek Mayhew to decide the winner.

There was a children’s and adult’s tombola run by Joanna Thomas which always is a great hit, bric-a-brac, a whole host of games from marble runs, key lock games, croquet and more, an amazing craft and jam stall from Susan Woods, plant sales from the Rawleys and so much more. We ventured away from the cream teas this year and sold slices of homemade cake with refreshments, plus takeaway options. This was a roaring success, mostly down to the coffee and walnut tray bake!!

We couldn’t do it without the support of all those who help – the cake bakers, Nick and his amazing signs, all those who gave up their afternoon to run the stalls and our crafters. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

We raised over £1000 this year which is a truly fantastic amount and will go to support the work of St. Mary’s Church in our community.

Jyoti Seva – our Christian Aid charity

We received a lovely reply from Jyoti Seva – our Church’s chosen Christian Aid charity for this year, following our donation. Do open their reply (click on the link below) and have a look at what they said. We choose to donate directly to support their work so 100% of the amount raised benefits the charity.

Voting in the General Election 2017

For voting in the General Election on 8 June 2017, Flowton, once again, will have a polling station in the Church Vestry – we are lucky to keep our local polling station, so many thanks to those who support it.

 

Quiz Night – Friday 5 May

The first Quiz Night of the year is on Friday 5th May, 7.30pm start, held in Church. We warmly welcome teams from Flowton and around the area. It is quite a lighthearted evening, helped as people bring their own refreshments and snacks to fuel the brain power!

**UPDATE**
Great fun at the Quiz Night which was won by our visiting team ‘Aliens’. Over £100 was raised for church funds.
