ALL the fun and flair of the upcoming Holy Trinity Anglican Church spring fair is to raise “much needed” funds and a chance for the church community to come together with the public.
It will feature all types of stalls including home-baked goods and products, craft and pre-loved toys as well as over 1000 plants and the church hall will be full of white elephant items.
There will be a kids’ corner with footie pass activities, crazy hair and giant chess.
Food stalls will have Devonshire tea, sandwiches, drinks and coffee and barbecue goods available.
For those who like to have a flutter there will be a silent auction with 30 items up for grabs including a golf bag and sketches of early Sydney.
Clergate Public School have a guest stall, giving them an opportunity to raise money for shade cloths and other improvements to their grounds.
Fair co-ordinator Lynne Middleton said with so many activities and stalls in place, there will be definitely be something for the whole family.
“We’re blessed to have a lot of older people in our congregation to make homemade things like cooking, jams and pickles and crafts,” Mrs Middleton said.
There’ll bell tower tours to see the working bells from 9am to10am before the bells will ring out between 10am to 10.30am and another tour at 10.30am to 11.30am.
“We’re always looking for new [bell ringer] recruits too,” she said.
Entertainment will be provided from the Orange Anglican Grammar School choir, band and dance and the Orange Dance Centre in the church.
“The church has a fantastic reputation for its acoustics,” she said.
Money raised will help with the day-to-day running of the church as well as mission work in the Solomon Islands and donations to charity groups including Bush Church Aid Society among many.
The fair will be held on Saturday, November 14 in the church grounds, corner of Anson and Byng streets from 8.30am to 12.30pm.
