Cosgrove Church Fete 1969


Wolverton Express 6th June 1969

Big attraction at a successful garden party held by Cosgrove Church last Saturday was the model railway in the grounds of Cosgrove Hall, kindly loaned by Mr. and Mrs. C. Mackenzie Hill.

The model railway was staffed by members of the church and the model engineering club and they were kept. fully employed for over three and a half hours providing rides for people of all ages.

The opening of the garden party was by Mrs. S. Gee, of Paulerspury. There was a children’s fancy dress parade, women’s and children’s flower arranging competition, games and competi­tions staffed by members of the congregation and visitors staying at Cosgrove Hall.

Another popular feature was the pony which patiently gave rides to the children throughout the afternoon.

Stalls, teas and ice cream were staffed by members of the FCC, Sewing Guild and Mothers’ Union.

Proceeds amounted to £103.
