With hurricane Ciara hitting the shores there was a limited attendance to church. However a number of us made it and the presentations went ahead to three of our collectors. Our thirteen collectors raised £130 in 2019 - thank you.
Twenty two shoeboxes were taken to the midland collection point for the charity "Link to Hope" These were checked over and along with a further extra £30 in donations will ensure that the boxes make their way to Bulgaria, Moldova, Romania and Ukraine.
Around 300 people visited the gardens in Whitacre. Saturday made £644.50 and Sunday raised nearly triple that amount raising £1780.50. The grand total of £2425 will be split between Air Ambulance and our local Methodist Church.
Thanks are due to our gardeners, our cake makers, and stewards who all contributed to the grand result. We could not have asked for better weather.
A lovely sunny weekend allowed many to enjoy the twelve or more gardens open to view. Refreshments sold well with a wide range of cakes. Did you buy a plant to take home? We thank all those who opened their gardens and helps their visitors.
Can you spot the houses these flowers were seen in?
Brian came and sang for us and the concert was a big success raising a total of £180 to church funds. Thank you to all who attended enjoying a splendid evening and especially to Brian for entertaining us again.
Whitacre Congregation is a vibrant mix of young and old who enjoy meeting for Sunday worship. Do come and join us.
