Wedding exhibition

A century of wedding dresses
The wedding exhibition at St. Andrews over three days of the 2018 August Bank Holiday weekend was a great success with plenty of visitors and donations.
The Clayhidon History Group's organising team, led by Pam Reynolds, of Thelma Blackmore, Bridget Drummy and Val Slabbert (pictured below right), decorated the church with 15 wedding dresses on mannequins, some complete with original headdresses and shoes. Also on display were photos, albums and details of all weddings which have taken place at the church this century and last.
Peter Fisher (pictured below left) put together a second exhibition, recording biographical details of all the servicemen from Clayhidon killed in the First World War.
Cream teas and cake were on offer in the church room.
The church was beautifully decorated by the flower ladies, led by Nicola Bendle, who also organised the hog roast held on the Sunday.
The marquee unfortunately blew down in the heavy rain, so the event was moved to the parish hall.
