Summer Fair 2018

St Anne’s Church Summer Fair a Great Success

Blessed with glorious weather on Saturday 21st July, the Summer Fair held at St Anne’s Church, East Wittering was an outstanding success raising a much needed £3,000 towards Church funds.

Local residents and visitors enjoyed the many attractions with stalls offering home-made preserves, cakes and local crafts as well as bottles, tombolas, raffles and a variety of amusements.

Beautiful needlework by the Witterings Quilters Group was on display in the Church.

Refreshments, including Fr. Steve’s renowned ‘burgers and beer bar,’ were available in the Rectory Garden. Pimm’s, tea, cakes and sandwiches also proved extremely popular with many who attended the Fair.

The Bracklesham Ukulele Band provided much appreciated entertainment.

Local ‘Sound and Celebration’ DJ and compère Kurt Nye played a selection of favourite tunes and kept everyone informed of developments as the events progressed.

The afternoon ended with a Grand Draw from the sale of raffle tickets with many generously donated prizes.

The Fair was seen as an excellent opportunity to bring together the local community and the congregation of St. Anne’s Church to enjoy this very special occasion. Visitors spoke of the warm welcome that they had received and of how much that they had enjoyed attending a traditional Summer Fair such as this. A great deal of hard work had gone into the organisation of this event and most grateful thanks were given to everyone who supported it.
