Just come along!! No tickets ….just turn up!

Our REMEMBRANCE Events…….

This year we had 4 delightful Chelsea Pensioners come to our annual Tea Party. Always such fun! The church was packed with not only masses of poppies but also  around 120 people!

A wonderful community event ! Several of the island’s residential and nursing homes attended with some of their residents, who thoroughly enjoyed the tea.

The display this year was greatly enhanced  by the loan of some stunning watercolours done by Peter Burkhardt’s grandfather, Major Valentine Burkhardt DSO, and painted in 1917/ 1918. If you haven’t seen them yet please do come into church and look at the poppy display, the paintings and also an installation in the side chapel of details of the names on our Memorial.  This will be up until about Wednesday,  27th of November so plenty of time for you to come and have a look!

We also had a marvellous concert by GWMVC which attracted over 125 folk. We ran out of glasses but not wine ! Fabulous singing and a marvellous retiring collection of £820 was donated and will be split equally between church and the choir’s choice of charity for this year which is Ron Short Centre.

Thank you to all who attended and gave so generously.WEBSITE A4 poster GWMVC 8 Nov 2019

WELL DONE TEAM ST SAVIOUR’S!!!

Our ever popular REVEL was  a fabulous afternoon in glorious sunshine. A lovely atmosphere with some old fashioned games such as Splat the Rat and a Coconut Shy! The revived plant/ veg stall was very popular as were all the stalls.

Thank you to everyone who helped to make the REVEL such an amazing day.

Those who helped before the event boosting Raffle ticket sales, (total sales for the Raffle was a staggering £4,350), those who erected tents and shifted furniture, those who made cakes, fed the hungry hordes be it BBQ, ice creams or scones. In fact to all who worked so hard on the day and made each and every game and stall a huge success and helped to bring in the fantastic total of just under £7,000. A fabulous Country Fair with a wonderful community atmosphere. Yes a tiring  day, but so  worthwhile.. THANK YOU !!!!
