STOP PRESS £1,118 raised at Marwood “St George’s Day” celebration.
This was one of the many church fund raising events planned over the next 6 months and took place in Marwood Church Hall on Saturday 22nd April when around 60 parishioners, friends and visitors enjoyed a banquet of succulent locally produced sausages and mash (vegetarian sausages were also available) plus a superb array of puddings followed by cheese and biscuits. The entertainment started with poems and some amusing accounts of the origins of St George given by David Pepper. A lot of head scratching followed with questions relating to our English heritage. Finally there was much flag waving and fine singing of “Land of Hope and Glory” and “Rule Britannia” to the accompaniment of music played by Margaret Greenslade and Pauline Williamson. Event organiser, June Williams, said she was quite overwhelmed with the amount raised and sincerely thanked the support of the helpers and all those who attended.
