Egdean villagers hold their annual barbecue


The annual church barbecue held in the churchyard at St Bartholomew’s in Egdean raised an impressive £1,300 for church funds.

Secretary to the parochial church council Christine Dallyn said: “It was an extremely hot balmy evening and all ages enjoyed the barbecue together with a grand raffle, homemade cakes and produce and a great selection of children and adults books, puzzles and games. Thanks to everyone for their support.”
