Arts Festival 2017


August Bank Holiday 2017


Thank you to everyone who helped with the Art Festival. We raised a magnificent £1240. Events such as this are only successful if we work as a team and Mike and I would like to thank: Sarah and her helpers for their help on Thursday evening and Friday morning receiving, cataloguing and hanging the paintings -  we would have struggled without her expertise;  Joanna for her help and for organising the refreshments and all of you who provided cakes and biscuits, helped serve over the weekend, washed tea-towels and kept the kitchen and meeting area clean and tidy; To those who helped man the door, acted as stewards and persuaded lots and lots of people to buy raffle tickets and helped clear up! Geoff for organising the musical entertainment and all those who took part. A special thank you from me to Mike who sent out reams of emails to artists encouraging them to exhibit and for arranging the delivery, setting up and finally dismantling of the display panels and for help clearing up at the end of the exhibition.

Last, but by no means least, thank you to those of you who came along and supported the event – it was a wonderful weekend.



This years' festival was a great success with an exhibition & Sale of Paintings

Live Music Events included a concert on Friday 25th August with Steve Lauri of The Hollies

Steve Lauri concert – Friday August 25th 2017


The Churchwardens would like to extend a huge thank you to Ruth and Judith Rookledge for organising the concert by Steve Lauri in our beautiful 13th century church.

All tickets were sold and the magnificent sum of £1,170 raised will go towards the £40,000 we need for our project to keep our church a warm, secure and comfortable place for communities to enjoy for future generations to come.

Thanks also go to all those who helped before and during the evening to ensure the success of the event and last but not least thank you to everyone who came, we had a tremendous evening.

We hope that Ruth and Judith will be organising more concerts in the near future so if you’re interested in coming along or receiving details of forthcoming events, please email
