The children's craft activities were popular. Making an Advent calendar involved adults as well as children. Making Christmas cards meant the glitter glue was well used! Hunt the Church Mice involved whole families as they tried to locate the 21 knitted mice hidden around the church.
|Concentration needed for Advent calendars ...|

The art exhibition in the Lady Chapel showed off the work of local painters, with a varied selection of pictures.
|Just some of the paintings|
|Lots going on|
Thanks also to the organising team, those who manned the stalls and activities, those who made and/or donated items, and those who cleared up afterwards. And thanks to Stephen Pike for these photos.
We had a great day and those who came enjoyed themselves. A father with two small children was leaving at 3.30pm having been there all the afternoon. "I don't want to go home yet" said small daughter. "You've made Christmas cards, played with the toys and looked for the Church mice. We have to go now as I have to get the fish pie ready for tea" said Dad. Small daughter continued to ask to stay as dad firmly led her away.
