This ambitious Community Art Project, creating the Bible story ‘The Feeding of 5,000 people’ in Salt Dough, continues. Local schools, groups and clubs have been involved and their models displayed locally.
A sincere thank you to all who have contributed to this huge crowd of salt dough people. I’m glad to say local schools, youth groups, ladies groups, craft groups and lunch clubs etc. have all been involved and created some fabulous characters. At the last count, we had almost 3000 figures!
Dalston Methodist Chapel have invited us to display the whole crowd in their Chapel, during their Village Festival Week. So please come and see this great sight.
The chapel will be open on
Monday 6th, Tuesday 7th, Wednesday 8th August, from 2.00 pm. - 4.30pm.
The Royal British Legion also have a display and afternoon teas will be served.

The next two lunches are on Sunday 5th August, 2nd September, at 12.30 pm. in the Primrose Hall, Gaitsgill. An opportunity to get together with others in our community.
Occasionally we put out a donation box to give everyone an opportunity to support a worthy cause. At our September lunch we will be supporting the Primrose Hall – funds are needed for maintenance.
Come and enjoy a lovely meal and a chat! Always on the first Sunday in the month.

All Saints Church Summer Fair
We are planning a summer fair for Saturday 18th August.
To have a variety of stalls we would like to invite community groups and individuals to consider having a stall. The cost is £6.00 per stall, but the number would have to be limited as the fair will be in the church so it is first come first served!
Please book a stall by giving me a call on 016974 76463 or sending an email to email@example.com and I will reply.
The church will be running the refreshments and plant stalls. Posters giving more details of the event will go up around the area in the month before the event.
