St Paul’s heads to the jun­gle for a re­ally fun fayre

The Wokingham Paper - - NEWS -

BIG GAME hunters en­joyed the chance to win a bot­tle, bag a teddy bear and try the lucky dip thanks to one of the first win­ter fayres of the sea­son.

St Paul’s Church in Read­ing Road opened its doors to hun­dreds of visi­tors on Satur­day for its sa­fari themed fun day.

Visi­tors could try their hand at a num­ber of fun games in­clud­ing a bagatelle, a raf­fle and a clergy-run bot­tle tombola. There were also a range of stalls of­fer­ing plants, bric-abrac and books.

Church mem­bers made lunches and re­fresh­ments in the kitchen, and all par­tic­i­pants wore fancy dress. One young­ster even dyed her hair in ze­bra stripes.

The event was opened by the town mayor, Cllr Pe­ter Lucey, and raised just over £1,930.

Liz Gal­lagher, who helped or­gan­ise the event, said: “I thought it went re­ally well and there was a bril­liant at­mos­phere. Ev­ery­one seemed to have fun which is the best we could ask for.”
