Regular Events 

Mother’s Day 

Each year committee members meet up just before Mothering Sunday to make up 150 posies of Spring flowers in small glass bottles. They are delivered to the hospital and handed out by the children who are patients in the hospital to their mothers. Every year we get enormously positive feedback from mothers and the hospital staff. 
 
 
 
 

Mendip Fair 

A very successful annual event, The Mendip Christmas Fair donates its profits to charity. We have been and remain one of the beneficiaries and are very grateful for the share of the profits that we receive each year. Some of our committee are also on the planning committee of the Mendip Fair and we all help out in many ways at the week-end long event. There are great stalls and delicious lunches and teas provided. It is all run by dedicated volunteers. 
 
The dates for the Mendip Fair this year are the 3rd and 4th of November 2018. 
 
 

Wreath Making 

Every year just before Christmas we hold a wreath making fundraising event. Last year it was a lovely morning and there were some beautiful creations made. A massive thank you goes to Esme Hunton for running the event and to Helen Thornhill for hosting.
