Broughton Choir St John Baptist Parish Church



Coffee Morning Success

What an amazing morning!
Yet again the Parish Hall looked absolutely wonderful; there were stalls offering flowers, jewellery, gifts for Mothering Sunday, chocolates, toys and books; there was the ever popular ‘Catterall’s Corner Café’, its tables bedecked with beautiful spring flowers; there were endless games to keep our younger customers amused ... and as always the scene was complemented by the wonderful aroma of frying bacon!

Our customers certainly seemed to enjoy themselves; they kept the stall holders and café ‘proprietors’ extremely busy ... and there was some very competitive bidding at the auction and once again we have set another fundraising record!
Thank you so much to our organisers; to all the parents and friends of the Choir who gave so generously and worked so hard both prior to the event and throughout the morning; to the gentlemen (and boys) who laboured tirelessly, cleaning cars in pretty nippy weather; and of course to the boys themselves, who once again proved what a wonderful team they are, so readily offering to work on the stalls and contributing so much to the fun of the morning!
A big thank you too to the Parishioners who supported us in such large numbers, and to the local businesses who once again were extremely generous with their donations. There is little doubt that the people of Broughton recognise the wonderful contribution made by our Choristers and their families to the worship in the Church week by week. They demonstrated this fact very clearly once again today.
The proceeds of the morning will certainly assist us with the enormous costs involved in maintaining our Choir;  new music, replacement robes, the subsidy to the IOM Holiday Course, the France Tour,  Examination and Award fees for our Choristers, the Llandudno Trip… the list is endless.

‘We’ve had a wonderful morning’, said a couple of very satisfied customers as they were leaving the hall.  Comments like that make it all worthwhile!

Thank you everyone
Yours sincerely
John Catterall
