‘New’ church bazaar still loads of fun
Trinity Methodist Church in GraaffReinet had to make a few changes to their traditional bazaar due to Covid-19 regulations this year, but it was a success nonetheless. The bazaar managed to raise over R37 000 for the church.
On 28 August, the church held a roadhouse bazaar, to cut down on big crowds. The event was advertised online, people placed their orders and paid beforehand, and on that Friday, they simply drove up to the doors of the church hall, where roadhouse runners assisted them.
Despite the changes, old favourites such as curry and rice, boerewors rolls, pancakes and bazaar pudding were still on the menu. Young and old also enjoyed the cotton candy.
"Trinity wishes to thank the community of Graaff-Reinet and surrounding areas for their most generous support in so many ways, in making the bazaar a success," said Mariana Evans on behalf of the church.
According to Evans, the best part of the bazaar was the fellowship. "With us being under lockdown and separated for some time, the timing was perfect to draw people together again as a family."
The bazaar looked a bit different this year, with “roadshouse runners” taking orders to bazaar-goers in their vehicles.
Delicious cakes and sweet treats were a hit at the Trinity Methodist Church Bazaar.
