St Mary’s Open Day & Craft Fair – New Date

St Mary’s Open Day & Craft Fair – New Date

The Rector, Churchwardens and PCC have been looking closely at government guidance with particular reference to our event, which is a mixture of indoor and outdoor activities. On balance, it was felt best not to go ahead with our traditional May event this year, but to proceed in full on a date after all event restrictions are lifted  on 21st June. 

The new date is set for Saturday 10th July, from 12.00 until 6.00

All of our volunteers, exhibitors and sponsors are still very much ‘on board’ despite the 2020 event having to be cancelled. There will be a very wide range of stalls and exhibits both inside and outside the Church Hall, with a theme of crafts and hobbies.

The church itself will be looking its best, with an organ recital planned for the afternoon

The Claude Jessett Trust will once again be our partners, with Wally the Steam Engine coming down from Tinker’s Park, together with the steam miniature railway and a fairground organ.

At the front of the church we will have a working forge and a potter’s wheel, and up in the Top Field the Harvey’s Beer Tent will be assembled, together with a BBQ.  Tea, coffee and cake will as usual be provided in the Church Hall. Our generous local sponsors have provided a range of prizes to be won in the raffle, which will be drawn at 5pm.

As all of the space on site will be taken up with stalls and exhibits, there will be no visitor parking available, but look out for directions to ample free parking further down Church Road.

St. Mary’s Openday and Craft fair 2019

St. Mary’s Openday and Craft fair 2019

On Saturday 11th May hundreds of people attended our second annual Community Garden Open Day and Craft Fair at St Mary’s Church Buxted. Most of them came from the parish. However, there were a number of visitors from greater distances as a result of the wonderful signs placed all around the locality and excellent advertising support from Uckfield FM and Radio Sussex. We have a few final payments to make. However, overall we look to have raised around £750 for parish funds with every single activity contributing to this total. Huge thanks to everybody who helped to make the event such a resounding success.
