A vision to make the space at St John’s Church more open and accessible to members of the local community was kickstarted on the Jubilee weekend by a free ‘Jubilee cream tea’ complete with a craft show of local talent.
A community grant from Totnes Town Council of £1800 was awarded to help fund the cost of display boards and other much needed equipment to make the space more useable.
Diana Walters from St John’s Church said: “Over 250 people enjoyed the Jubilee at St John’s Church in a joyful and colourful celebration of amazing local arts and crafts and a splendid cream tea. We are very grateful to the Town Council who helped us enormously, and to the many local volunteers for all their tireless work and constant joy!”
Councillor Emily Price, Mayor of Totnes said: “It was a real treat to pop into St John’s Church during the Jubilee weekend and see so many people enjoying a celebratory cream tea and happy conversation. What a lovely event! Well done to all the team who worked hard to put it together.”
