I would like to say a Big Thank you to everyone who came along and joined in at the cheese and wine evening at Occold church!
Fortunately the weather was kind and people could walk along to the evening with a feeling of hope, that summer would not be far away and how nice it was to have time to have a comfortable evening, sampling various cheese and drinking good wine plus the benefits of being able to chat with friends, catch up with village news and generally enjoy the convivial atmosphere in the church.
A raffle was held and some people were able to choose a nice prize to take home with them at the end of the evening.
It was the first cheese and wine evening that our new rector had experienced, it was good that he was able to meet and join in with villagers and good for those people to meet him.
There was a happy, bubbly atmosphere throughout the evening, it made me feel like it was an Occold Family celebration.
We have made some money for the church funds and once I know what the total is, after the selling of the remainder of the plants, I will let people know.
The Plant Sale held on the morning after the cheese and wine evening went well too.
Thank you to those of you who once again helped to provide cakes, plants and raffle prizes and to those who came to support us on Saturday morning.
We all really appreciate everyone's help and support as we are only a little group who try to keep the church going for the village.
