The sun was bright and not a cloud in the sky for our Annual Church BBQ. Following the Cafe Service, the church gathered in the garden area for a time of food and fellowship. With many people sporting hats, we feasted on freshly grilled hamburgers and sausages, crisps, and several very tasty desserts to top it off. The garden was in full bloom and looking magnificent as we sat around and chatted, laughed, relaxed and enjoyed each other's company. The donations that were collected will benefit the church fund. Thank you to all who helped in all sorts of ways: planning, food preparation, setup, serving, and cleanup. It was a time to be remembered for the beautiful summer weather and camraderie of those who were able to share a meal together. A special thank you to Sue and Bill Craven for spearheading the event.
The sun shone gloriously for a recent wedding at Pannal Methodist. Several of the church ladies had worked tirelessly to decorate the church with beautiful flowers and ensure that the church garden looked at its best. Their efforts raised funds for the Methodist charity All We Can.
We hold regular Community Teas at Pannal (see our Regular Events page), but in June each year we hold a special Strawberry Cream Tea which is always extremely popular. This year was no exception with over 40 people joining us to enjoy home-made cake and scones with cream and delicious Yorkshire strawberries which were generously donated by Crimple Valley Fresh. The event raised over £140 in aid of local charity Speakability which provides support to stroke victims.
