Church fete is a sell-out suc­cess

The Arran Banner - - News -

Brod­ick Church was packed to the pews with the large num­ber of vis­i­tors at­tend­ing the an­nual fete held in the church, hall and gar­den last Satur­day af­ter­noon.

The hall, lo­cated to the side of the church, of­fered a tombola, a groan­ing bak­ing stall and a tea room, which was filled to ca­pac­ity. In the church it­self, vis­i­tors keen to scoop a bar­gain were greeted with a plant stall, bric a brac stalls, chil­dren’s toys and a trea­sure trove of books spread through­out the church pews.

Out­side in the sun­drenched gar­den, chil­dren’s games took place along with the tra­di­tional ducky derby which in­volved vol­un­teers sell­ing tick­ets for a num­bered duck which was then plucked from an in­flat­able raft ‘pond’.

The an­nual gar­den fete was fol­lowed up with the grand auc­tion at the Brod­ick Golf Club­house where larger items and art­works were auc­tioned off on Thurs­day night. Pro­ceeds from the fete and the auc­tion all go to­wards church funds for events and ac­tiv­i­ties through­out the year.
