The organisers of the Parish’s first Open Day were delighted with its success. Event co-ordinator Helen Murray, a member of the local Pastoral Council, said the outcome was extremely pleasing. More than 300 people are estimated to have attended the event. The level of participation spanned all age groups.
Helen said many people commented favourably on the wide range of activities and enterprises undertaken in the parish, some of which were not previously well known. New volunteers were enlisted for numerous groups and ministries.
As a result of generous donations, five gourmet hampers and ten other prizes were raffled on the day and various door prizes awarded.
