Winter goodies add warmth to fete
WITH winter creeping upon us the winter scarfs and crochet blankets were a hit at the Anglican Church Mission Fete at the weekend.
Cheryl Skillington found some great bargains including a scarf that goes with everything at the Work Stall with Elaine Wiedman who said everyone was eyeing off the winter items.
One of the organisers, Kath McGrath, said they had a great start to the day with plenty of residents from around the districts coming through the doors of a knick knacks section she worked in.
“It’s incredible, we have had a fair few in already and we are only getting started,” Mrs McGrath said.
The annual fete, which raises much needed funds for the mission and the school chaplain, started three years ago and is definitely growing each event.
“There are a lot of great bargains this year and everyone is out looking for one,” she said.
Over at the Lucky Bottle Stall there had been a few punters hoping to win a treat, which stall organiser Oriel Chicken said was more of a hit with the children.
“We have already had three winners. It’s always a bit of fun,” Mrs Chicken said.
Kayleen and Norma Jeffries had plenty of bags of goodies they had picked up from the great stalls around the St Marks Church grounds.
“The cakes were the best bargains but all sorts of other things,” Kayleen said.
There was plenty of action and entertainment from the Warwick and District Country Music club performing, the talented Killarney Dancers to Dawn Booth from the Warwick Spinners and Weavers creating a master piece.
