Quilting enthusiasts raised £300 for the Children’s Hospice South West at an exhibition of their work in Congresbury on Saturday (Oct 27).
The event was staged by the 12 members of Congresbury Quilters in the Old School Rooms, where the group meets every Tuesday.
Pat Baker, who launched the group some three ago, said: “It was amazing. Our members put in lots of energy, enthusiasm, hard work and served some lovely cakes too.”
An exhibition is held every two years for the Children’s hospice.
“New members are welcome – they can pop in any Tuesday afternoon 1.30 – 4.00 pm,” said Pat.Quilting Exhibition
Music, lights and laughter filled Broad Street for the annual Christmas Fair.
A new feature this year was the mini Ferris wheel, emblazoned with festive lights, which continually took pairs of children up and over the street to look down on the hectic activity.
The new Christmas street lights, organiseded by the Parish Council, and the superbly illuminated Christmas tree added to the jolly atmosphere.
The Big Breakfast held on Saturday raised a whopping £1,480 for Weston Hospicecare. Well done to everyone who worked so hard to make it a success, and to all those who gave their support and bought a big breakfast. Special thanks go to Julie Gosling and family, without whom it would not have been possible.
Remember to take all your unwanted clothes and items to the Hospice shop in Broad Street, and while you’re there, have a look round, there may be just the thing you were looking for.
