There will be a Christmas Fair held in Church on Saturday 2 December, from 10am. Come and enjoy crafts for children, tombola (plus the ever popular kids tombola), bring and buy and lots more.
Our village Harvest supper was once again held in the Church on Friday 15 September. We raised over £450 for church funds, so thanks to everyone who attended. The food was once again delicious. Gordon and Wilma’s raffle and auction went down a treat!
We welcomed new residents from Rhodd’s Farm to the village.
We look forward to seeing everyone again at the Harvest events in October – the coffee and craft morning, Harvest Festival and tea, and the Quiz Night.
If you are interested, do speak to Rob and Debbie Clements at Grove Cottage.
It will be held on the weekend of 22nd-23rd June 2019.
Our village Harvest Supper will once again be held in church on Friday 15th September at 7.30pm.
Tickets are £6 and available from Diana Fawcus and Mary Carter, or on the door.
Buffet and refreshments are provided and we will be holding a raffle.
If you can help with the buffet, please do see the Churchwardens.
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.
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.
Tye Lane will be closed around Bramford Tye between 8am and 5pm on Monday 26th and Tuesday 27th May. You will not be able to travel between Bramford and Flowton during these times.
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.
