Anglican Parish goes alfresco for a day

Inviting people to enjoy alfresco dining at the Lismore Anglican Parish Market Day and BBQ this Saturday are (l-r) fundraising committee members Margaret Perkins, Des Perkins, Glenda Roe and Ken Davis.

The Lismore Anglican Parish has gone up market for its annual fundraiser this year, and instead of the traditional church fete, are holding a Market Day and BBQ complete with alfresco dining.

The event is on this Saturday, October 14, from 8am in the grounds of St Andrews Anglican Church and the parish hall in Zadoc Street.

We normally have a church fete but this year weve changed it because fete is old-hat and a lot of people dont know what it means, said church fundraising committee member, Des Perkins. Its the first time well be doing breakfast which, along with Devonshire tea and the barbecue, will be served outdoors or alfresco all day. Its a new concept and something different.

The day will feature a huge variety of market stalls selling everything from homemade cakes and confectionery to plants, produce, crafts and linen. Children will be able to enjoy a range of activities such as face painting, a guessing competition, jumping castle and balloon shaping, plus heaps more youll discover once you arrive.
