A great day at St Peter’s Fair

On the lovely summer’s day of 14th July, the sights and sounds of everybody having a good time greeted me as I visited St Peter’s annual fair.

It was a well organised and attended event, with many stalls and activities. There were crafts and toys, bookstalls, bric-a-brac, plant sales raffles and tasty treats. Plenty to do for the kids too, a bouncy castle, pebble painting and glitter tattoos, mask making and lots more. In the fresh air was a free BBQ and a Djembe drumming circle. Something for everyone!

Janet Lawless, a member of the congregation, had an information stall within the church, with pamphlets and leaflets about upcoming events and activities, she said:

“St Peters is more than a church it is a community centre for many faiths where everyone is welcome”

It was a great day put on by the people at St Peters and it was enjoyed and appreciated by many.

We’d love to hear from more of Burngreave’s people about how they think the Burngreave Messenger could best serve the community, so we’ve created an opportunity for you to tell us what you’d like us to do.
