Organisers of the St Peter’s Anglican Church fair are brimming with excitement with the news that the much-loved event will be held this month.

The fair is the church’s major fundraiser for the year and usually attracts thousands.

It will look a little different this year, but organisers are working hard to ensure a fun time for everyone that attends.

Stalls will be adorn the outside of the church buildings and a large plant stall will be set up with a huge array of vegetable seedlings and general garden plants.

Do you miss your Bunnings sausage sizzle? Never fear. Out front on Draper Street the snags in bread will be served to hungry fairgoers.

The famous St Peter’s cake stall will be set up at the rear of the church buildings, selling sponge cakes, biscuits, slices and maybe some homemade bread.

Jams, pickles, relishes and other preserves will be there to tempt your tastebuds. Small gift baskets of preserves will make a good Christmas present.

A craft stall will focus on children and there will be a huge Christmas hamper raffle and a specially made Christmas cake can be won.

After being without markets for so long, it’s hoped the community will support the fair and organisers are working hard to ensure the fair is run in the safest way possible.

The St Peter’s Fair is on Saturday November 14 from 9am to 1pm at the church on Draper Street, Ocean Grove, just behind Ocean Grove Park.
