ST LAURENCE’S LARDER at the CUCKOO FAIR 2017 
 
Thank you to everyone who played a part in yet another successful day at St Laurence’s Larder at the Cuckoo Fair. We raised  
a wonderful sum which will go towards the upkeep of our beautiful - but expensive to maintain - parish church. We will also, as always, be donating 10% of the profits to the Cuckoo Fair Committee to help continue their excellent work. 
 
It was a real team effort – so WELL DONE and THANK YOU 
to everyone who: 
 
made, transported or provided food and flower arrangements 
donated money 
helped with getting the hall ready and clearing up 
at the end 
made telephone calls 
prepared and served food and drink, cleared tables, washed and dried up and collected money. 
 
The quality of the donated food was excellent as always – and we had lots of praise from visitors to the Larder. Indeed,  
thanks must also go to our valued customers! 
It may have been hard work, but it was also a very happy day of Christian fellowship and if you were not there  
you really did miss out – but there is always next year!
