How quickly Houghton Feast comes around and how kind the weather was to everyone this year! After the usual opening ceremony on the Friday night Saturday brought the Craft & Produce Market in Church and the Parade in which Space4 took park.
There was a wonderful variety of stalls in church with all sorts of great things for people to look at an buy and there was a good footfall all throughout the day. The hot sandwiches went down very well as did all the homebaking. Huge thanks to everyone who contributed and to those who worked so hard getting the church ready for the the market and then turned around again at the end of the team. What a team!
Sunday morning we hosted the Feast Civic Service which was very well supported by the local community and many civic dignitaries. We enjoyed a sermon from Canon Provost of Sunderland Minster Stuart Bain.
