Late summer fun event

Plans are being made for two events at the end of August.  There will be a ‘St Nicholas late summer fun event’ on Saturday 29th August from 2 – 4pm in the Church Garden. There will be a cake stall, book stall and craft stall with woodwork and cards, a treasure hunt, teddy tombola and maybe other attractions. Cold drinks, tea and cake will be available, and ice creams! There will be car parking for those with disabled badges. We shall need to abide by social distancing regulations at the time, but this need not stop us having an enjoyable afternoon. Please keep the date free and come and support this event! In particular, we would be really grateful if you can bake cakes for sale.

In addition, a ‘St Nicholas virtual festival’ is being organised, with events from Saturday 22nd to 31st August. These include a ‘Talent show’ for members of St Nicholas congregation on Saturday 22nd August from 7 – 8pm on Zoom. Do you play an instrument? Would you like to read a poem? Do you perform magic tricks? Have you made something special during lockdown that you would like to show? Would you like to show us your pet?                          

On Friday 28th August there will be a Quiz from 7.30pm on Zoom. This can be entered individually or in family bubbles.                                     

There will be a Photography Competition on the theme ‘Bedfordshire through the lens’, with two categories, children under 12 and adults and young people over 12.

There will be a Teddy Hunt to spot knitted teddies in shop windows around the village. The prize is to win your favourite teddy bear. These three events are open to everyone.
