Church roof fundraising event

THREE thefts of lead from the church roof in less than a year has prompted the Friends of Newton St James Church to hold a fundraiser to try to replace over £5,000 that has been spent on new lead.

The Friends are holding a table top/car boot sale on September 2 at 11am at Newton Playing Field. Attractions include a raffle, refreshments, traction engine rides, games and competitions.
