Outside the Church

A huge thank you to everyone who helped to organise or assist with our Annual Fete on Saturday 7th July. Despite everything else that was going on, lots of people came and we raised over £500 for church funds. Well done everyone!
Back at the fete stalls -
The totally unbiased Human Fruit Machine
Just too late at the water into wine stall - the previous bottle did have wine, honestly!
Bric-a-brac stalls - you never know what you'll find. Limoges, anyone?
Glass and crystal
Knock off a duck and you get a lolly
and of course . . .
Teddies from the Tower
Preparing for a perilous ascent . . .
Checking all is safe below
Was the parachute properly packed . . ?
Yes!. . . and a graceful landing by this expert
Some preferred a horizontal style for their descent
Others a more sedate method, perfectly composed whilst sensibly wearing her hooped skirt as backup.
(He got down safely in the end!)
Once again, Rupert decided he wanted to see more of the world . . . not for the first time
(Two years ago he ended up on a gutter due to unexpected high winds and was found the following year.)
Mind the gutter, Rupert . . . the gutter . . . .
Spectators were using Personal Protective Equipment.
And certificates for the heroes who survived the ordeal!
Many thanks to Verwood band whose music was a delight all afternoon
And at least one person goes home with a bargain!
