On a very wet, windy and cold Saturday (15th December 2018) plenty of people braved the weather to visit the Open Day at Wimborne Methodist Church. The Coffee Lounge was full of regulars and visitors alike, enjoying fellowship with each other, and a similar number of people in the church being entertained by "Voices" singing group and the Ukulele Band.

We were very encouraged when our MP Michael Tomlinson came to our Christmas Open Day. He has been very good over the years in supporting various events here and we do appreciate his interest. Our minister, Gwyneth, welcomed him and said how we all realise the pressures our MPs are under at the moment with the complexities of Brexit to negotiate. She assured him and them of our prayers.

Refreshments were served all day, light lunches were available upstairs and the Cake Stall rapidly sold out! A total of just over £408 was raised and this will be presented to the Headteacher of Wimborne First School on Friday 21st December, when the school hold their Christmas Assembly on the church premises. They will be using the money towards a Sensory Garden at their new premises in Wimborne.
