Thank you to all who supported and helped at our very successful Village Fete, allowing us to raise over £3,300 towards the Bells Appeal. We were encouraged by the kind comments both on the day and since of how much people enjoyed a traditional Village Fete. The Charmborough Ring was also a big success, with a full peal of bells ringing thanks to local bell ringers, many people trying their hand at ringing the bells and several showing an interest in following this up.
Planning will start soon on a Beetle Drive and Christmas Bingo for later this year.
Meanwhile we are working on our application to the National Lottery. A second application for the fabric of the church will be made at a later date. Both applications need to include how we can increase the use of the Bells and Church not just for fund raising but as part of village life. Do you have ideas on how we could do this? If so, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your thoughts.
Thank you all for your continued support and donations. Following the Village Fete, our total fund plus pledges has now reached over £23,000.
