A weekend not to miss

A WEEKEND of celebrations is being planned at St Mary’s Church, in Hadleigh, next month.

The church fete, which includes a dog show, is being held in the garden of The Deanery, which is next to the church in Church Street on Saturday, September 1.

Taking place at the same time is an exhibition in the church commemorating 350 years of The Book of Common Prayer. This takes place from August 30 to September 2.

There will also be an exhibition of all the activities and groups that are connected with the church which first went on display over the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee weekend – including the award-winning Porch Project, which provides leisure and educational activities for young people.

The fete takes place between noon and 4.30pm, with traditional stalls and sideshows and prizes for participants in the dog show.
