PARISH GARDEN PARTY CELEBRATION 2018
Sunday 17 June 2018
`Together we can make a difference`
It is two years since we held an afternoon party in the Monastery garden for all members of the parish. It was a great success. Since that time, extensive works have been done in the garden, clearing roots, felling trees, tidying up, levelling the ground so that it is once again ready for a party! Everyone agreed that we had a great time in 2016, just sitting around, relaxing, chatting, laughing and meeting up with friends from the parish. The celebrations had something for everyone……and of course the sunshine helped make the afternoon a special occasion!
This year we are holding our celebration on Sunday 17 June 2018 from 1.00 – 5.30pm.
Bring your own garden chairs and blankets if you are able.
We want to make it an event which welcomes everyone – so let us know if you would like help or a lift to get there. (0151 7221108)
Food will be available with a BBQ, cream teas, sweets, crisps, ice creams and other favourites. We will have a bar serving alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Drinks for children will also be available.
There will be other stands such as the cake stall – which was a great hit last time - a tombola and various raffles.
Music from Mary McCoombs, Benchmark and singers.
Dancing from the Ferguson School of Irish Dancing
A clown show, games and face painting for the children.
Outside games for all ages including the return of the Bishop Eton Boules Tournament!
Tickets go on sale after all Masses from Sunday 27 May
Prices: Adults ticket: £3 Family ticket: £6 (Parents and children under 16)
Donations for the bottle tombola gratefully received – please bring them to church after Sunday masses or pass them into the Monastery any time from 20th May.
Volunteers: we are in urgent need of help in setting up on Saturday 16th June, staffing for the various stalls, BBQ etc and clearing up at the end of the day.
If you are full of energy - PLEASE offer your help – there will be a meeting for all helpers on Tuesday 12 June at 7.30
As usual money raised on the day will go to the Redemptorists’ education and food projects in Zimbabwe. We are delighted that one of our young parishioners has volunteered to travel to Zimbabwe this year to work in the Redemptorist school.
………..and finally…………– please pray for sunshine!!
