Thank you!

A huge thank you to everyone who supported the Christmas Craft Fayre last weekend.

After expenses were claimed, (lots weren’t) we raised an amazing £1590

Every penny of which goes towards the maintenance and repair of our beautiful church.

Father Christmas is visiting Thornton today!!

Arriving at the Reservoir Inn around 10am, touring the village on Colin’s steam engine visiting Highfields, Main Street, top and bottom, before arriving at the Community Centre for a day in his Grotto seeing little people.

Craft fayre opens at 10am. Lots to do and see including making Christmas decorations. See you there!
