Christmas Fair Photos 30 Nov 2019
St Mary’s Parish Church in Saffron Walden held their annual Christmas Fair on Saturday 30th November 2019 and raised a magnificent total of approximately £5,500 towards the ongoing work of the church. See here for amount raised by each stall/activity.
Visitors enjoying the festivities filled the church, which had the theme Follow that Star, with the church decorated with Christmas lights and stallholders dressed in a range of Christmas costumes. The 7th Saffron Walden Brownies, Guides, Junior Choir and youth groups from the church also ran stalls with fun games and competitions; there were also stalls selling home-baked cakes, fashion accessories, books, plants and handicraft. Visitors were entertained with seasonal music and the Parish Rooms were transformed into the “Starlight Café” serving delicious refreshments and providing an opportunity to relax in warm and welcoming surroundings.
A message from the organiser Richard Garvey: "You did it again! All you stars, shepherds, kings, angels and other wonderful characters, all in the Starlight Cafe, our wonderfully talented Musicians and Singers and Bell Ringers, every single stallholder, our Publicists, Printers, Setters Up and Clearers Away, all who came to support and help in every way – THANK YOU. The Christmas Fair would have been nothing without you. You raised a marvellous £5,500 plus for Church Funds but more importantly brought hundreds of people into St Mary’s. Well done!"
