Abseiling and family fun day

Vicar Paul descends

Many thanks to the 59 people who abseiled down the church tower as part of an event for “Raising the Roof”!

We were blessed with an amazing day of sunshine for this and the family fund day.  Activities included Soft Archery, Skittles, Hook a Duck and a Treasure Hunt. There  were Bacon Barms from 10am, kindly cooked by 1st Weaverham Sea Scouts, and Cake served by the Mothers Union from 1pm as well as Tea / coffee / ice creams available all day.
We are still counting up what was raised but its over £2,500. Proceeds will go towards St Mary’s Raising the Roof, our fund for work which needs to be carried out to make this lovely Grade 1 listed building fit for the future.
Thanks everyone!
