Members of the historic St. Alban’s Church are hoping local people will support the event in the Edward Eccles Hall on Saturday 18th April.
Visitors will have the chance to climb St. Alban’s tower (subject to weather) and experience the wonderful panoramic views of Tyneside. For children, there are plans for a bouncy castle and supervised pony rides. Mouths of the Tyne Community Choir will also be singing at the event.
The Vicar the Reverend Andrew France, said, “Traditionally we hold our Church Fayre in the autumn, but as this was not possible last year we have moved the event to April in the hope that more people will come and support us. St. Alban’s is a much loved local landmark and we need the support of local people to keep the building open and in good shape.”
There will also be raffles, tombolas and games for the children as well as refreshments. The event begins at 12 noon when a soup lunch will be served until 2 pm. Afternoon tea and cakes will then be served until 4 pm.
