OPEN SATURDAYS AT TRINITY
11am – 2pm at Trinity with refreshments, stalls & lunches
1 December: Trinity Church Christmas Fair
5 January: Hillside Allotment
OPEN SATURDAY – THANK YOU
Thank you to all who came along on Saturday to support Water Aid. An amazing £329 was raised, which will also be added to from Trinity Mission Funds.
Saturday 1 December, 11am – 3pm
The volunteer board is now up at the back of the church. Please sign up your offers of time/donations. We need the help of everyone to make this a success.
Donations can be left in the box next to the volunteer board, in the office or given to Karen Eccles or Vanessa.
OPEN SATURDAY BRING & BUY
The next Open Saturday is combined with the Church Fair, THERE WILL BE NO BRING & BUY OR SECOND HAND BOOK STALL.
Lisa will be running a toy stall and is accepting donations of good quality toys, games and children's books.
The Bring & Buy stall is a brilliant addition to Open Saturdays; it is a fantastic way to reuse items and avoid increasing landfill.
It also raises between £50 and £80 for the charity. This is a great achievement and I would like to say thank you to Cecilia and Rosemary who work very hard.
Please can we remind you that good quality 'as new' items sell the best. The Bring & Buy will be returning on 5th January 2019.
At the end of each event we only have storage for a small amount, and so the rest has to be taken to a charity shop. If you would be able to help with this on a regular basis then please do get in touch.
I am currently compiling a list of charity shops who would be able to accept our donations and have easy parking.
TRINITY CHRISTMAS BUNTING (Trinity Small Groups)
Our bunting theme this year is “Gold Stars” – they can be any size or a mixture of sizes and dimensions, decorated in whichever way you and your group feel inspired as long as the overall look is mostly gold.
Please have them ready by November 29th and at the church for them to be strung up in readiness for the Christmas Fair
Thank you very much to everyone who filled a shoe box for Operation Christmas Child. We sent 46 from Trinity this year which is a fantastic total.
