Everyone is welcome, whether you are new to the area; been here for ever; a mum with a baby or toddler (toys are provided!); or recently retired and would like to meet for a chat; or you are just visiting our beautiful Church.

St Andrew’s Summer Fair

Summer Fair editThe Annual Summer Fair takes place at the beginning of July. In recent years it has been held on the Church Green, or the Town Hall if wet – though in 2012 it had to be cancelled completely because of the torrential downpours and flooding on the day! Stalls, games, refreshments, music and entertainments for all the family make the day one of the most enjoyable in the calendar.
