Each year, the church holds an event during the spring, summer time and Christmas period.“I think for a number of people for a number of years, the fairs have been a thing in their diaries,” said Andy Hiles, a trustee of the church.“It’s good for people to come along and have the chance to get together and mingle as well as raise money for the church.”The next event is expected to take place sometime around June.
