Steaming to success!


Knowle and Dorridge Christadelphians welcomed a large number of people to their Open Day last Sunday. Over 200 cream teas were served as visitors enjoyed the pleasantly warm afternoon buying cakes, plants, second hand books and other Bible reference books, taking rides on the miniature steam railway, watching an enthralling series of puppet shows retelling Bible stories, playing volleyball and boules and listening to live music from a group of young members. Donations to the Meal a Day fund amounted to £642, which will be greatly appreciated by the charity which helps the hungry.

“We are delighted with the response of the public since this is the first time we have tried this kind of event! We want to enable people to get to know more about us as we approach our Silver Jubilee year and I hope we have succeeded,” said George MacDonald, the event co-ordinator. “I’d like to thank everyone who helped make it happen, especially the Orchard Line steam locomotive enthusiasts!”
