A great deal of village fellowship was had and at the same time just over £1,000 was raised for the Church 'Raise the Roof!' appeal.
As Christmas Days approaches when we will celebrate the birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ, we will also quietly celebrate the fact thats the Restoration Appeal for His house us just coming up to the halfway mark, £60,000.
