I'd forgotten the joy of preparing parish Christmas Bazaar's! Many thanks to the small group of dedicated parishioners who have being doing the organising, galvanizing many others into action such as helping with publicity, asking local businesses to donate items and, of course, to staff the stalls. Needless to say, there has been the usual anxiety: will there be anything to sell? But parishioners have responded magnificently and donations have been coming in very nicely indeed. It has been extremely hard resisting the temptation to divert some of the donations for the bottle stall to 'parish use' - particularly on these cold nights. All we need now is for people to come on Saturday, 10 December between 1 and 4 pm to win the lovely prizes on offer, get a bargain and have a lot of fun at the same time. See you there!
With my prayers and best wishes for a blessed Advent,
