In advance of the Church Sale on Thursday 10th August the hall will be open to receive donations from 10.00am to 12noon, 2.00pm to 4.00pm and 6.00pm to 8.00pm on Tuesday 8th july and Wednesday 9th July.  Quality items for the jewellery, fancy goods, china and glass stalls are particularly sought.  Our Bric-a-Brac stall encompasses everything from soft furnishings to paintings, electrical items to nick backs.  We accept most things but of course electronic items must be complete with instructions and we cannot cope with old televisions.  We do not have a book stall so no books please.
