St Andrew’s Church will once again host its renowned Granny’s Attic on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th May 2016 from 10am to 2.30pm with teas, coffees, scones and light lunches – and all are welcome to this popular event.
St Andrew’s first held a Granny’s Attic in an empty shop on Park View, Whitley Bay in April 2009. It was so popular, it was held again for a week in June 2010, and then for a month in July 2011. Along the way many new friends were made who returned daily as new stock was arriving. At that time, the money being raised was to fund the redevelopment of St Andrew’s Church.
Since then the event has been held on the Church premises in Eastfield Avenue, with the added advantage of being able to provide refreshments. This year, as before, there will be many types of goods to browse and buy, including nearly new clothing, household items, bric-a-brac, jewellery, books, children’s toys and many other interesting items.
We look forward to welcoming new and returning loyal customers to these two days of fun, friendship and bargain hunting. This year the proceeds will be for Christian Aid, church funds and St Andrew’s other charitable work.
