Wereham News – September

Wereham Church Festival

Church and Community came together in February to plan our 2017 Festival. Five months later, it all came to fruition .
Sunday 16th July dawned with mixed weather forecast but the day was a great success with lots of people coming to enjoy a traditional village occasion.
A myriad of stalls including Horse Shoes, Hoop-bowls, Hoop-la, Sand in a cup, Bean bags, Ear-phones, Tombola, Plants ,
Water or wine? Shove-halfpenny, Play your cards, Cakes and Produce, BBQ and drinks and a comprehensive raffle .
A new departure this year was Barry and Marcus Hawkins who spent a very busy day valuing antiques and collectables .
Inside the Church were displays by Wereham Tots, Messy Church and Wereham Heritage Group together with beautiful
flowers and organ music . A P/A system had been kindly loaned and behind the scenes, a financial structure was in place .
Members of Wereham PCC are extremely grateful and wish to thank all the people who made the festival such a success –
the stall holders, planners, those who donated goods and items, flowers and plants and those who made generous donations.
Grateful thanks go also for fuel and meat for the BBQ, to Barry and Marcus Hawkins, to all contributors to the displays and
to the team who set up the infrastructure and cleared up at the end .
This was a real Community and Church Festival to which many people devoted much time and energy and it resulted in a
magnificent total of £1,898.23.

Wereham Heritage Group invite you to ‘come and have a mardle’

Join us in the Village Hall on Saturday 22nd July, 2-4pm for an afternoon of reminiscing and refreshments!
Old photographs, postcards, newspaper clippings and original film footage are among the items on display for you to enjoy.
‘Mardle’ is an example of local dialect, meaning to gossip or chat.
This is a much-requested follow-up from a very successful event held last year, which saw visitors of all ages explore Wereham-past. This mardle promises to be an afternoon of nostalgia, and a chance to meet up with familiar faces. Our collection is always expanding and we greatly appreciate new material. We have the facilities to make copies of documents, leaving you with the originals in a matter of days.
For additional information about the mardle event, or to discuss donating or lending material please contact a member of the committee or email us – werehamheritagegroup@gmail.com.

Wereham Open Gardens

This year our Open Gardens will be on Sunday June 18th. As many of you know this is an important fundraiser for the church and helps towards the running costs.
I have promises from several people to open their gardens again but it would be brilliant to have some new gardens too. They don’t have to be show gardens, our lovely visitors just enjoy walking round, meeting everybody and picking up ideas. So please have a think about it and feel free to have a chat about opening your garden.
Or if you would like to help in any way either before or on the day please contact me.
Hope to hear from you……….

Please would you remember our plant stall if you are dividing plants or seedlings and if you have any spare you could pot up for us to sell?
Also any surplus ornamental pots that you may have that can be potted up or garden related items are useful.
Ronnie’s plant stall is always popular and helps immensely towards our overall total for the day.
Thanks
