Promise Auction

Once again the Promise Auction was held at the Rectory. For those who don't know, people are asked to donate 'lots', these can be anything from 1hours ironing, Chinese meal for four, a trip up the tower, or even an all expenses trip to the theatre.

 

These items are then auctioned off and the highest bidder wins. It was once again a very exciting evening raising a magnificent sum of £1435

 

Events planned this year include

Pemberton Old Brass Band Concert

Parish Shop

Carol Singing

Grand Christmas Raffle
