The Diamond jubilee fair

On Saturday 19th May 2012 St Johns held its Jubilee fair to celebrate the diamond jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.
Unfortunately the weather was not great - particularly in the morning so the decision was made to hold the fair inside!

However it brightened later enabling the athletic to attempt, with mixed success to "beat the goalie"!

As always, the CafĂ© was very popular. 
There were various games and activities such as face painting, badge making, bottle tombola, raffle .... 

.... tombola, and roll a 2p.    (Do you remember rolling that lovely 1d?)

In addition there were some great stalls such as .... handicrafts, fruit and veg., plants and cakes.

There was an excellent atmosphere and a good turn out.  It was lovely to see three generations of several families having fun together.

The fair raised over £1,500 which is absolutely excellent!
A big thank you to all those who worked so hard to enable the fair to happen and to all those who came to support it.  The generosity of you all is very much appreciated by the church.
