or something along those lines.
Next Sunday afternoon is Church in the Valley's annual fundraising fair...In a moment of wild abandon, a "Circus Skills" performer has been booked (which is going to play Old Harry with our profits - but hey, if it encourages people to come along and have fun, it's surely worth it). A splendid group of stalwarts from the congregation is standing by to sell plants, books, cakes and toys, to operate the obligatory tombola and serve teas to our visitors, - so all the basic ingredients of a traditional church fete are ready, just waiting to be combined.
BUT we do need a few ideas for sideshows - preferably of the sort that doesn't involve the vicar and her family having to do all sorts of handicrafts in the coming week, which looks quite busy enough as it is.
We do have a set of stocks, in which I rather fear I'm to be incarcerated while my devoted flock hurl wet sponges at me....but beyond that, we really need some entertaining games that might engage passers by.
As veterans of church fetes on both sides of the Atlantic, I'm sure my readers have some suggestions....What is your "sure fire money spinner"?
I wait to hear with bated breath.... Thank you!
