Easter Market

The Easter Market will take place at Wem on Saturday, 23rd March, starting at 10.00 a.m. As you know the Easter Market has a long and successful history in supporting both the District Children’s Holiday Fund and our own work with young people to fund events that the children may wish to be involved with. More recently, we have joined Andrew and Felicia Dutton at their farm for a camping weekend which has included fun, games and activities with a Bible theme, financed from our funds. We hope that we can once more rely on your support this year even though you may not have young people’s groups at your own chapel anymore. Could you have a stall, or run a game, or perhaps you know of someone who would like to run a craft stall at the Easter Market. We charge £5 a stall if you wish to keep your profits for your own good cause; otherwise we know that the proceeds from some of our stalls will be given to our good causes.

We have three competitions this year which we hope you will join in with – please note there is NO upper age range in the oldest group so we can “all be in it to win it”. The competitions are:

  1. An Easter Card
  2. Four Easter Cup Cakes
  3. Easter Bonnets or Boots

The age ranges for each competition are:

  • 0 – 5 years
  • 6 – 10 years
  • 11 – 15 years
  • 16+ years – no upper limit!

Do come along and support us – it is so nice to meet up each year and if you can help by running a stall or a game, please ring me, Chris White, on 01952 541 504, otherwise I hope I can assume that you have blown the dust off your paints and crayons to make a card, or bought some new oven gloves to help in baking your cup cakes, or indeed are making plans even now to produce some artistic creations in Easter Bonnets or Boots (Wellies are welcome)! All the competitions will be judged at the Easter Market, but even if you cannot attend please send your entries along – you may win an Easter prize.

Please contact the North Area Circuit Office for more information.
