Last Sunday’s South Wraxall Fun Day raised £720.59 towards the upkeep of St. James’ Church. The Link Group sends a big ‘thank you’ to everyone that helped make the day such a success, helpers and visitors. Here are a few reminders of the day, including the decisive bout of the hotly contested tug-o’-war.
South Wraxall Fun Day in full swing
From Mark Caroe (yesterday):
I recorded 82mm of rain in the last 24 hours (3 ¼ inches) at Church Farm must rank in the records!
From John Love:
The recent house to house collection for the RNLI raised a magnificent £213.04 – a record amount for the village. These monies will be most welcome in supporting our brave volunteer lifeboat crews and the lifeguards. Grateful thanks to Jacqueline Loxton and her team of collectors for their sterling efforts and to the residents of the village who gave so generously.
Today’s planned dog walk is cancelled – not all of the dogs are competent swimmers!
From Liz Jones:
A reminder about the Village Fun Day and Mini Fete, this Sunday 2pm -5pm in the Village Playing Field.
There will be children’s races, volleyball, rounders, skittles, and ‘It’s a Knockout’ style team races for children and adults!
There will also be a few of the traditional fete stalls and refreshments including teas, cakes, Pimms and ice creams. Please come and join us.
The last Afternoon Teas event for this summer will be held at St James’ tomorrow. Once again, delicious cakes and sandwiches will be served.
The teas have been amazingly successful in raising £600 towards the upkeep of the church but more importantly have also been hugely enjoyable.
