Despite the odd drop of rain the fête was a wonderful afternoon out – thank you to all those who worked so hard to make it a success and to everyone who came out to support the fête.
The bell stall had examples of the items taken out of the tower – bell wheel, clapper and headstock – along with decorated items made from nuts and bolts taken from the tower.
There are still some items left – should you be interested in having any of them please email email@example.com and we will do our best to help.
We still have a few places left on the first genealogy workshop – for details click here – to book a place please email firstname.lastname@example.org ; we have 3 workshops planned at present, two genealogy and one calligraphy – in your email please note which workshop you would like to attend.
The Church Fête will be held on Saturday 22nd June, in the garden of the New Rectory. The Fête starts at 2pm.
Please come along and enjoy tea and cakes, various stalls including the tombola, bottle stall, plant and book stalls, games for all ages and live music…and a stall where you can buy the following:
- a half wheel (these range from 3 to 6 feet diameter) – fairly light ?ash wood.
- a headstock very heavy, believed to be oak
- a clapper very heavy, metal
- a rope guide (from the 1970s) made from wood – 2 are still attached to oak beams.
All these items have been taken out of the bell tower – they are dirty, dusty, greasy, they may have splinters, rusty bolts etc – they are NOT TOYS – we hope that bell-ringers may like a memento, artists may find a base for a sculpture or other project, gardeners may like to use these items in a garden feature…we will bring one of each item to the fête so you can see what it is – the bulk of the items will be left in the bell tower and we will go to the church after the fête ends where those who have purchased an item can pick it up.
Also there are various nuts and bolts that have been cleaned up and painted available – we think these would make good paperweights.
As none of the items from the bell tower are toys and may be dirty, greasy or have sharp edges, splinters or rusty bolts etc, we will only be selling these items to adults.
