Barry Nankervis and Father Andre Du Plooy sell raffle tickets at the church fair.

St Augustine’s Parish Church volunteers held their annual fair and garden party at the weekend.

The grounds beside the church were covered by stalls with everything from toys, craftwork and handbags, to beautiful jewellery and china.

Guests enjoyed a concert, a wall of artwork from the U3A artists group, as well as local artist Ella Egan’s textiles, keeping the eyes and ears entertained.

Also at the event was a gigantic jumping castle, activities for children as well as a raffle, gourmet lunch and stalls filled to the brim with cakes and goods baked by Shepparton’s Macedonian community.

Event co-ordinator Patricia Gibson said the gourmet lunch included beautiful pavlova and cheese cakes, which were treats ‘‘to die for’’.

The annual event is a way to raise funds for the church, as well as bring the wider community together.

‘‘There was a lower attendance this year because there were some other major events on across the region, but we’d like to thank the public for supporting us again,’’ Ms Gibson said.
