Marshland St James held a yard sale on bank holiday Monday to raise money in support of the village community centre construction fund.
It raised £140, which may seem small compared to the £700,000 Lottery grant the project has just won but as organiser Jean Didwell said: “It was a great community event which introduced neighbours and created friendships.” She also gave special thanks was to the St James Chapel for organising the refreshments. Those wishing to support project can buy a brick for £10 by contacting David Gathercole on 07774 492330.
