Appledore Congregational Church entered its 300th year last week.
To mark this great event, the small band of church members are going all out to raise £1 for every year of the church’s existence to help with the proposed redecorating of the whole premises. Feature of the 299th anniversary service was the dedication of a number of choir gowns by the Minister, the Rev Alfred Grey. These gowns will be distributed to the junior choir, numbering about 12.
On Wednesday of last week a sale of work was held in the schoolroom. It was opened by Mr C R J Griffin, chairman of the North Devon Congregational Union.
Stall holders were: Mrs D Edwards; Mrs J Whitear; Mrs G Edwards; Mrs A Fisher; Mrs J Cox; Mrs W Beara; Mrs C Penney; Miss C Williams; Mrs J Peak.
Total proceeds amounted to £145.
