Thank you for your support at the Christmas Craft Bazaar!
The sale of chutneys, adult manicures and children’s nail painting and donations raised an excellent sum of £68.50.
It was a very enjoyable day and thank you to all of those who supported us.

Thank you for your support at our Strawberry Tea Party
FOWC would like to thank everyone who came to our Strawberry Tea Party. Despite the rainy weather we had over a hundred people joining us for delicious strawberries, Pimm’s, homemade cakes, teas and coffees and family games including our ‘hunt the otter’, tombola and a wonderful raffle. We are delighted to announce that we made a magnificent £775!
A very big thank you once again.
THE FRIENDS OF THE CHURCH OF ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST, WATERINGBURY (FOWC) has been registered by The Charity Commission for England and Wales as a charity – Number 1151983. This follows the recognition last year by HMR&C of our charitable status for tax purposes, making all donations eligible for Gift Aid. This is really good news, as it will make our task of raising money for the church more rewarding and a bit easier.
