Fun for all 

The theme for this month's Saturday@St Mary’s activities morning on September 8th was ‘On Yer Bike’. There were lots of fun activities for all ages.

You could bring your bike to have it marked by the police. There were ‘bike’ crafts, an art table and quizzes. You could add to the Parish Patchwork and take a trip up the church tower. 

Next month’s Saturday@St Mary’s is a week later than usual, on October 20th, when the theme is ‘Trains, and Boats and Automobiles'. As usual everything, including refreshments, are provided free of charge, 10.30a.m. - 12.00 noon. See you there!
