What a manic two hours at the annual Christmas Parish Hall Fair. From the time of opening the doors at 2 p.m. to the finish at around 4.30 p.m. the hall was packed with parishioners buying raffle tickets, playing at the various tombola stalls, guessing how many sweets there were in a jar, trying to put marbles into a upturned flower pot, visiting Father Christmas in his grotto or just having a cup of tea and a delicious piece of cake. The St Ippolyts Church PCC had a tombola stall which was incredibly popular. Well done to Jane and Jennifer Veasey for putting all the prizes together and for Jane, Jenny and Mary for manning the stall. Your junior churchwarden was there trying to sell his Christmas Quiz Sheets. In the end the stall raised well over £160 half of which is for the Parish Hall funds.
