That's entertainment! 

The theme for Saturday@St Mary’s Church on 12th May was ‘May We Entertain You’? The answer from the large number of people who attended was, ‘Yes you may’ and we certainly did, writes Tony Rous.

St Mary’s Primary School provided a delightful, quality performance of singing and music playing. Hattie the Clown had many of us juggling and plate spinning. There were craft tables to get us making beautiful paper flowers and amusing puppets. We could add to the Parish Patchwork. There was a creative prayer table. We were able to play table top games and giant on the floor games. We were encouraged to give Revd Kevin Ashby jokes to read out. There were quizzes and riddles to solve. Eighteen people were led up the church tower to see the bell ropes and go on to admire the great view of Melton Mowbray. There was an impressive photographic display by Melton Mowbray Photographic Society, where you could stand and admire the inspiring and thought provoking images.

In between being entertained in all those ways you could go over to the new servery and enjoy tea, coffee, juice and the most delicious looking cakes. You could have a chat and read a selection of the day’s newspapers.

To complete 90 minutes of all-round entertainment there was a short service. The theme was, ‘Welcome to Church’. Adults and children alike had been truly entertained and felt very welcome.

*The next activities morning will be held in the church from 10.30am until 12 noon on Saturday, June 9th, when the theme will be ‘Jurassic June.’
