Did you meet the @acnbchurch team at the Romsey Charities Fair on Saturday on Saturday. Let us know if you’re tucking into cakes or pickles form the stall.
This is the first time All Saints has been represented at the Romsey Charities Autumn Fair. We were really pleased to be there and grateful for the opportunity, and for the generosity of those attending. Over £170 was raised to support the work of our churches. Our stall was stocked with masses of cakes, pickles, cards and handmade crackers.
As North Baddesley grows the connections between our community and Romsey grow ever closer.
Revd Victoria Ashdown said: “Events like this fair are a great opportunity to be ‘visibly present’ as churches acting for the common good and to meet people we might otherwise not. We were struck by how many people mentioned the Poppy cascade memorial to the First World War which had run at St John the Baptist when visiting the stall.
If you are new to Ampfield, Chilworth or North Baddesley, and you see us out and about at events like the fair, please don’t be shy. Come and say hi, or drop into some of the events that run weekly across our churches. T-Cup Cafe at All Saints is a great place to start.

The Autumn Fair has run for over twenty years. The fair’s November slot in the calendar makes it ideal for early Christmas shopping. It’s a great initiative that allows charities, like @acnbchurch, to benefit from some of the great rush of spending. Marion Hurst Chair of the organising committee said ‘we run it because it helps the charities, and links people together. This Saturday was the best we’ve known for some time’.
