Bouncy Castle on Tour

Bouncy Castle on Tour

The Stoke Poges Church Blog is back!

Thanks to Ruth Rooley for this summary and photos of the Stoke Poges, Wexham and Fulmer Horticultural Society’s Annual Show, in which many members of the congregation participated. With apologies for omitting the article from the last edition of the Church Magazine.

Rain did not dampen the spirits, nor spoil the enjoyment, of people who braved the elements to attend the Society’s Annual Show. The number of entries was up and the quality of the entries praised by the judges. There was quite a buzz in the marquee as everyone viewed the entries and in some cases found they were winners! The scarecrows and other exhibits entered by local school children were much admired, as were the cakes, preserves and handicrafts. The flowers and vegetables were outstanding considering the wide variations in the weather, that we have experienced this year.  Visitors also enjoyed looking at the wonderful photographs exhibited by the Photographic Club

Outside, the Reading Spring Gardens Band continued to give much pleasure, even with the rain coming down!  John and Ed Rabbitt,  with Debbie in assistance, provided the barbecue and Pinewood Nurseries ran the tea tent, while the Crocker family manned the bar. The stallholders and outside exhibitors had a bit of a damp day, but we are grateful for their support and for those who supported the tombolas and raffle, or helped in any way.

The Church, very generously, provided the bouncy castle, which had to be blown up again inside St Andrew’s Church the next day to be cleaned down and dried off!

The Society’s Autumn Members Evening is on Wednesday 18 October at 8 pm in Stoke Poges School, Rogers Lane. There will be talk, table show and buffet supper. Nonmembers are very welcome but will be asked to make a donation towards the cost of the supper.

The Horticultural Society’s AGM is on Wednesday 15 November in the School at 8 pm.

The Bigger Picture

We are part of the Church of England and of the Deanery of Burnham and Slough. We seek to play an active part in the wider church. We are also keen to encourage good co-operation across denominational boundaries as we seek to be part of God building his kingdom.
