Last Year's Very Successful Days....

The  Tower Open Day at St Buryan on Saturday 12th August was a great success. Thank you to everyone who contributed to a hugely successful day. The cake stall set the scene in the morning, selling a wonderful selection of home baking plus bags of bulbs grown, bagged and beautifully presented by Paddy. Helen, Paddy, Alison & Carrie, you not only sold out from your table, but encouraged people to come into the church for a tour of the bell tower, as well as giving directions to the Farmers' Market!

A big thank you to Ian, Carrie and Sarah who burnt the calories running up and down the tower, Chris and Miranda for demonstrating the bells all day, Ted for selling the tickets, Marian giving the introductory talk and to Caroline, Wendy, Sheila and Penny for serving teas… and also to Vanda for sharing her love of our wonderful church, and not forgetting the dog and cow-sitting!

Thank you to all who sacrificed their Saturday and contributed a total of £620.61! (I'm sure Ian will confirm the final figure if I've miss counted anything).

... and very well done  again to everyone who helped make the Bank Holiday Tower Open Weekend such a wonderful success. Final figures are still to come in but around £626 on Saturday and £433 on Sunday, so over £1,000 for the weekend. Congratulations!.

The photos below of the fantastic panoramic view of West Penwith from the top of the Tower shows that it is well worth the climb! See you all again next year.....
