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 !!!!

Tea and Cake with  the Chelsea Pensioners  was on Thursday 8th November and was a fantastic afternoon..Trevor John, Ray Petrie and Dewi Treharne were visiting the island for Remembrance Services and came to St Saviour’s church to look at our Poppy Display and have some tea and cake and lots of chat! They were absolutely fabulous fun and especially chatty with the pupils from La Houguette School who came along with their teacher. They had made 3 wreaths which were displayed in the church.

St Saviour’s church had been filled with masses of poppies in clear bottles on all 8 of the window cills. Poppies were made from crepe paper, tissue paper and painted coffee filters, as well as crotchet ones. All sizes ! A wonderful display is in the side chapel which gives details of the 31 men who lost their lives in the two wars and are named on the War Memorial in the churchyard.

Red painted stones have been placed along the path to the church and poppies from recycled plastic bottles stuck in the grass. A poppy of stones is also outside with 31 named stones for the those on the War Memorial in the centre.

A superb display! Unfortunately now taken down so only the pictures above to look at!
