On November 25th a group of Bamford villagers organiseda Christmas Market to provide funds for new equipment forthe Recreation Ground play area.
Stalls were set up in the car parks of the ‘Anglers’Rest’which is celebrating ten years of community ownership thisyear.
As the ‘Anglers’ is directly opposite the Methodist Church inBamford, we decided to help out by providing facilities,staffing and equipment for a LEGO DAY.
Tall, wide, fragile, intricate and interesting models were made and a goodtime was had by all – including some adults who were deep in concentration‘helping’ their offspring and enjoying every minute of their excuse to playLego!
With a congregation mainly of folks of advancing years it becomesincreasingly important to build up links with young families in the communityand this event gave us an excellent opportunity to do just that.
The switching on of the village Christmas lights followed, mulled wine wasserved , the Chapel cross shone out brightly, and Father Christmas camealong to join in the fun.
New friends were made and a happy ( if tiring day for some!) time wasenjoyed by people of all ages.
