Date for your diary: St Mary’s Church Open Day, Shipton under Wychwood: Saturday 19 August

As there is no Shipton-under-Wychwood village fete this year, St Mary’s church will hold an Open Day instead, from 12 noon to 4pm on Saturday 19th August. Everyone is welcome to come along. All activities and events will take place either inside the church or in the churchyard.

Inside the church we will have delicious cakes and tea, a stall with homemade cakes for sale, visits to the Bell Tower, a stunning array of vestments and some wonderful music. You will be able to see proposed plans for the rejuvenation of the bells and improvements to the heating, toilets and catering facilities.

In the church grounds there will be a BBQ selling tasty hot dogs and delicious burgers. Slake your thirst at the drinks tent with a beer or a cold beverage. Children can have their face painted and enjoy the Jousting Horse. A huge variety of jigsaws will be for sale. Win prizes at the whisky stall, at the tombola or from the raffle. We look forward to welcoming you with your family and friends.
