Thurs June 30th St. Thomas’ Leesfield FUNdraiser’s Fizz Fashion Show @ St. Edward’s Church Hall at 7:30pm – tickets available soon from Karen Jakeman
Tickets are now on sale for the Big Band Gala Night on the 2nd July. £10 adults, £5 children (although probably only suitable for older children}, includes buffet supper. There will only be 120 tickets in total because of the seating capacity at St. Edward's Hall, so if you are unable to come because of other commitments please don't buy a ticket as we would love to have a "full house" on the night. However, if you wish to support the event in another way, donations of cash or raffle prizes will be gratefully received.
Sat July 9th Harvest Queen Amy Jakeman’s “at home” – This will be Amy’s big event when she invites the Rose Queens from other churches. So please come along and support her.
