ST AUGUSTINE’S CHURCH are organising a series of events which will raise funds for a new staircase from the bell-room to the top of the church tower allowing visitors to see the wonderful views of the local landscape.
The views that will be on offer from the top of the tower will surely be breath-taking capturing both the Holderness and Hull landscapes.
But in order for the public to re-discover these views, the church needs to raise the necessary funds!
A Flower Festival is being held in May.
A special fundraising preview evening will be held on Friday 4th May 2012 with wine and savouries on offer (tickets cost £10 including first glass of wine).
There will then be 3 days of events taking place during the Flower Festival. The church and flower displays will be open for public viewing on:
- Saturday 5th May, 10am – 4pm
- Sunday 6th May, 2pm – 4pm
- Monday 7th May, 10am – 3pm
On the Saturday local author Valerie Wood will be signing copies of her latest book The Harbour Girl from 2pm – 4pm.
At 7:30pm the church will stage a concert by the Hull Male Voice Choir. Tickets cost £8 (£4 for under 12s) and proceeds from the concert will be shared with the Coastguard Association.
On the Sunday a special Songs of Praise service will be delivered by the Bishop of Hull followed by a bring and share lunch.
Tickets for all the events are available from Hedon Carpets and Beds on Watmough’s Arcade.
These events are a marvellous opportunity to enjoy yourself with your family whilst raising vital funds for worthwhile causes.
