‘New’ c­hurch ba­zaar still lo­ads of fun

Oudtshoorn Courant - - NEWS - PAU­LA-ANN S­MIT

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.

P­ho­tos: sup­p­lied

De­li­ci­ous ca­kes and sweet tre­ats we­re a hit at the T­ri­ni­ty Met­ho­dist C­hurch Ba­zaar.
