Football can't stop a bit of a do at Roydon church
Team vicar of Roydon All Saints, Rev Judith Pollard, admitted that the amount raised from this year’s annual church fete, called ‘A Bit of a Do’, on Saturday might have been affected by England’s World Cup exploits at the same time.
“The amount varies from year to year but still we hope to raise several hundred pounds for church funds,” she said.
The event sets out to be an old fashioned fete with traditional games and entertainment such as music from the 1950’s and 60’s and strawberry cream teas in the church.
There was even a candy floss maker alongside the good old standbys of tombola, bric-a-brac, books and a raffle stalls.
Games included Hoopla, Hook a Duck and Balloon Pop, the latter run by the Friends of nearby Gayton Primary School (FROGS) to raise funds for their school.
Animal lovers also had the chance to stroke several sheep and a goat.
“It’s a lovely community event,” said the Rev Pollard.
