Jigsaw Puzzle Festival 2017 Sat 18 February to Mon 20 February at St Mary’s Church, Fordingbridge.
There are well over 500 puzzles of all sizes and for all abilities catalogued ready for the Festival! Many thanks to all you lovely people who have spent hours making them up for us. The response has been fantastic!
Our deadline for receiving puzzles for the Festival is 29th January so make sure you finish your puzzles and get them to us by then, thank you.
The Festival itself will run from Saturday 18th February to Monday 20th February, 10:00am to 5:00pm. Admission is £2 per adult and includes a discount off the purchase of a puzzle, as well as return entry to the church and hall over the Festival.
It is an ideal destination for the Half Term holiday! Come to the Jigsaw Festival and you will find hundreds of puzzles on display in St Mary’s Church for you to buy. They will be made up so you can select from all that is on offer easily! When you make a purchase the puzzle will be put into a plastic bag and into its box for you to take home. A new puzzle will take its place so there are always different ones for you to choose from. In the Church Hall you will find light refreshments as well as unused/brand new puzzles for sale.
This a a true community project. Many people locally and as far afield as Downton and Damerham, as well as Berkshire and Shropshire, have donated and made up puzzles for sale. The profit from the sale of puzzles will be shared between St Mary’s Church and GR8, a local youth group which meets at Avonway.
On Sunday there will be a special Jigsaw Festival Communion Service in the Church Hall at 9.30am.
If you want to know more then please contact the Church Office and they will pass on any queries.
We look forward to seeing you there!
