Wimborne Methodist Church was packed on both Saturday and Sunday — there were stalls to browse, drinks and snacks served all day downstairs, with lunches served upstairs, and a place to sit for a while to take a refreshing break.
The forecourt was used to capacity, with more stalls and tables for the refreshments. The church-based ukulele group played on the steps, and a corner was set aside for Festival buskers who came and went during the day.
One of the many people to visit Wimborne over the Folk Festival weekend was Michael Tomlinson, Member of Parliament for Mid Dorset and North Poole. He dropped in to meet some of the volunteers at Wimborne Methodist Church and had time for a relaxing coffee with our Minister, Revd Gwyneth Owen. Our Student Minister, Jason Cooke, was also present enjoying the unique atmosphere of the festival.
All proceeds are going to help purchase a 'Magic Table' for the Wimborne Dementia Friendly Community, and we are delighted to be able to donate £2400 to such a worthy local cause. This magnificent result could not have been achieved without all the hard work of the many volunteers, and the overall organiser, Joy Morling, and we are immensely grateful to them. We also thank all the local folk and the many visitors to Wimborne who helped raise this amount. We hope to see you all next year!
