In Holcot we are blessed with a very fine gem of a church. Packed with character and a long history, it is open to all to worship, to visit or just have some moments of peace.. Every penny of the £406 per week upkeep costs has to be raised at a local level by local people. Thankyou for your support in the past and last Sunday.
Long may it continue….
The day of the Village Fete, dog show and art exhibition ….. June 2019
The sun came out,
The 25 straw bales and miles of bunting around
A dog show there – that’s new – with bales on the ground.
We opened the gates to a crowd of Crufts-worthy dogs
Dragging their families in on their leads.
The dachshunds, the spaniels, the mutts
The jack russells, the pointers and the viszlas.
The teas, “more tea vicar!”
The cakes, the lollies and a singing choir to view
The beer, the beer, the barrels ran dry
And prosecco corks popped as dogs trooped by.
The raffle, the coconut shy, crazy golf and tombola
There was some much to see and do!
An art exhibition, an oasis of calm
Beautiful paintings together with the church’s charm
Thank you for joining us here
So we can enjoy our church together for another year!
We raised £2200 overall
On a brilliant June day in our lovely village hall.
