In early September St Michael’s took a stall at the annual Evercreech Show with a Tombola where every number won a prize. Despite a rather cool and breezy day, the crowds came and the stall proved very popular, raising over £200 for parish funds. Thank you to the four parishioners who manned the stall, and to everyone who supported it in any way.
GRAND SUMMER DRAW
Our Grand Summer Draw was made on August 4th. A lucky member of our sister Church, St Mary’s in Glastonbury, as won the star pirze of a week’s luxury accommodation in Brixham, Devon. The house sleeps up to ten people and has wonderful sea views.
SUMMER BRUNCH BARBECUE
21st July, straight after Sunday morning Mass, found parishioners busy in the parish room and garden beyond, preparing for our annual Brunch Barbecue. The weather remained kind, and we were able to enjoy perfectly cooked food, good company and even an impromptu game of cricket.
PATHWAY STALL AT THE GLASTONBURY PRILGRIMAGE
A very happy and spiritual day spent at the Glastonbury Pilgrimage raising money for Parish funds.
COLLETT PARK DAY
Collett Park Day, an annual public event in the park next door to the church, dawned grey and overcast and setting up our stall was hampered by stiff chilly winds and showers. Trade was slow throughout the morning, but around lunchtime the sun made an appearance and the crowds came. Our Tombola where ‘every number wins a prize’ was a popular attraction, and the Books and Media stall also enticed many to grab a ‘three for £1’ bargain.
