The 2010 edition of the Ecumenical Kermesse, an annual charity bazaar organised by local churches and organisations, drew large crowds of bargain hunters on Saturday 4th December 2010.

The Kermesse: one happy wash-up crew

Members of the Saint Paul's community staffed several of the stands and services, including the wash up depot with its cheerful staff of volunteers (pictured here.)

Work to prepare the annual Ecumenical Kermesse begins early. St Paul's Church becomes the collection point for jumble (second hand articles) and a small army of volunteers works to receive, sort and load the collected jumble.
