For the first time, the parish ran a stall at the Amberley A & P Show (2nd November), selling homemade produce under our label, ‘From the Church Gate’, including beautiful Christmas cakes, preserves, and cordials — all lovingly made and presented by parishioners.
Cakes were available in several sizes to suit all needs, ranging in price from $10 to $50.
The weather was fine, the Show well attended, and the stall a great success. Probably the hardest thing was putting up the gazebo! With plenty of volunteers, everyone also had a chance to wander around and spend their money. At the end of the day, only one cake was left; this was quickly snapped up at church next morning — all sold!
Commercial kitchen for hire:
The $1100 raised has been put towards the cost of a recent kitchen upgrade. The parish hall kitchen in Amberley is now certified as Food Safe and may be hired for commercial food preparation — at a very reasonable rate. To enquire about the kitchen, please call Pat on 314 8272.
