Jigsaw Festival coming to Fordingbridge February 2017

Jigsaw Festival – July 2016 Update!Jigsaw Puzzle Festival Save the Date

In case you’ve missed it, St Mary’s, Fordingbridge will be launching its very first Jigsaw Festival on Saturday 18th to Monday 20th February 2017. Between now and February we aim to have 500 puzzles made and ready to display and for YOU to buy!! Half of the profit from the sale of Jigsaws will be donated to the GR8 Youth Group that meets Wednesdays at Avonway.

What we need now is more strong cardboard:

Please save and give to us big sheets of strong cardboard or hardboard! Packing boxes for TVs and washing machines is just the thing we need.

Ideally 75cm x 60cm.  or 60cm x 60cm but we can cut it to size once you’ve given it to us.

Please donate a puzzle: puzzles have already started to come in, thank you very much indeed, but we really do need hundreds! Please let us know if you have any and we can arrange to get them from you.

We do need lots and lots of people to make the puzzles up: already we have three really dedicated puzzle makers but we need more! Please offer to make at least one puzzle, any size. We have somewhere to store some of the made up puzzles. Do you know someone who loves making puzzles? Do you know someone who cannot get out and about so much these days and would like to be involved in a community project? Please ask them and put them in touch with us or let us know. We have puzzles ready for making up and need people!

      Thank you for your kind offer – people have been making up the jigsaws over the winter, and we now have enough jigsaws ready for the festival… keep your eyes peeled, if we do it again, we would love to have your help. We hope to see you over the weekend.
