Summer Fair & Produce Sale August 25th 2014

Although the August Bank Holiday Monday was very wet the Summer Fair and Produce was a great success with over £1000 raised towards the maintenance of the Millennium Green. Due to the rain the event was held in the St. Stephen's Centre and St. Stephen's Church. The produce stall, bric-a-brac and tombola were all very busy and many people enjoyed the delicious teas and the entertainment from the U3A Swing Band. Many small children (and quite a few adults) were providing plenty of audience participation for the Punch & Judy show.

Open Gardens June 2014

The Millennium Green Open Gardens fund raising event on June 8th was a great success with c. 250 visitors to the seven gardens which were open. The sun shone as people enjoyed the beautiful gardens, bought plants and books, and had delicious cakes and teas. A very healthy sum was raised towards the maintenance of the Green. Many thanks to all those who opened up their gardens for all to enjoy.

Summer Fair, July 7th  2013 2-5pm

The glorious weather on Sunday was a huge bonus for the Summer Fair. We were wonderfully entertained by the U3A Swing Band and are very grateful to them for their generous contribution to the afternoon's enjoyment. As usual there were plenty of home made cakes to take away or have with a cup of tea, listening to the band. The Punch and Judy man, Andrew, who stepped in for us more or less at the last minute, was a great success as were the variety of stalls and tombola.

In spite of it being the Wimbledon men's single final, a good number of people turned up to relax and enjoy another happy neighbourhood event on the Millennium Green. Thanks to all who contributed in their many different ways to bring this about.

Thanks also to everyone who helped to organise such a successful event.

Produce Sale August 27th 2012

The August Bank Holiday Monday Sale, turned out to be a great success inspite of very miserable wet weather. Because of the weather St. Stephen's Centre was used for the sale instead of on the Millennium Green. The bric a brac stall and second hand book stall were well stocked and proved to be very popular. Ivy Cottage plants and the produce stall were located outside due to lack of space in the Centre. However the small tents belonging to the Millennium Green were erected and the stall holders didn't get too wet and managed to sell most of their produce.

Summer Jazz Extravaganza with Hog Roast, July 2012

For the Hog Roast and Jazz on Sunday, July 1st, the Millennium Green was looking it's best in the welcome sunshine. All tickets were sold at least a week before the event so over one hundred people were gathered on the Green to enjoy good food, good music and a chance to meet up with old friends. More people arrived later in the afternoon when tea and cakes were on sale. The photographs of the occasion below record the happy, relaxed atmosphere fortunately enhanced by perfect weather. Many thanks to all who helped create this successful event.

Christmas Supper 2011

The 2011 Millennium Green Christmas Supper, held in the St. Stephen's Centre, was once again a very enjoyable event, attended by about seventy people. The Christmas Supper is an excellent opportunity for local people to get together and to share a really good buffet meal. A cheque was presented by the Friends committee's treasurer, Mary Ede, to the Millennium Green Trust's treasurer, Claire Smith, in the sum of £4,500. This money was raised over the past year at events held both on the Green and at St. Stephen's Centre.
