The annual 'Holly Fair' took place on Saturday 7th November 2015 at Wells Green Methodist Church on Brookland Avenue in Wistaston.
In the entrance hall, there was a raffle to win a hamper of Fairtrade goods, a competition to win two knitted animals and crocheted items for sale made by one of the church members - Mrs Olwen Wood – who is one hundred years old.
The stalls included toys, DVDs, books, costume jewellery, a blue & silver colour stall, Traidcraft goods, homemade cakes and Christmas gifts & crafts.
There were a wide variety of refreshments for sale in the café including soup, quiches, rolls, cakes, trifles and jellies.
Teresa Hoper and Myra Wood co-ordinated the food and drinks, and Pat Nott organised the publicity and the stalls.
The event raised £1,545.30 on the day. A coffee morning has been arranged for Wednesday 18th November 2015, from 10.30am to 12.30pm, at Wells Green Methodist Church, to increase this amount even further.
Pat Nott said, "The Holly Fair is an excellent community event, which is held on the first Saturday in November every year. Wells Green members are very generous with their giving and without their support, the fair wouldn't take place. It's a team effort and we very much enjoy working together."
