St John's Summer Fete

..... goes virtual!

Big thanks to everyone who took part in the St John's Online Summer Fete. A special round of applause to the wonderful Gill H who organised it all, and to all the helpers who will be baking, delivering and generally following up over the next few days.

Stephen D won the Quiz, and Jan G got the closest guess to the number of jelly beans in the jar (210 in case you're wondering.)

Raffle prizes were won by Linda A, Linda P, Kate C, Shirley B, Barbara E, Meg S, Sarah P, Judith C, Steve N, Stella, and Sue D.


And the Vicar got thoroughly soaked. If you missed the live version, you can see it on catch-up here.

We'll post an update on how much was raised when everything has been counted. In the meantime, if you'd like to make a donation, the JustGiving page remains open. Thank you.


Socially distanced afternoon tea and participation over Zoom.
