On Saturday July 14th 2018 the community known as “The Valley” comes alive when the St. George’s Anglican Church holds its annual “Thrill of the Grill and Parish Fair.” “Our Church fair is the major fundraising event which assists with the operating expenses of our church and its ministry to our members and the wider community,” said Adrian Archer, the church’s Parish Administrator.  “Monies raised are used to fund our various ministries including our vital ministries to the sick and shut-in, and our ministry to the Valley community and beyond.

“This year we have more than fifteen booths, including food stalls, games for adults and children and our Parish Raffle, all of which we know will be great to patronize,” said Ms. Sandra Knowles, chairman of the 2018 fair.


“Of course, the cornerstone of the fair is our Steak Out, being prepared by our award winning ACM team which begins at 12:00 Noon.”  said Burton Conyers, President of St. George’s Anglican Church Men. “Our steak recipe has won the the Fr. Anthon Roberts Grill Competition a number of time and we intend to show our patrons why on the day of our own event.”

“St. George’s is known to produce some of the best local foods around,” said Ms. Knowles. “This year we will have two conch fritter stalls which will be as outstanding as in former years, but we will also have a home cookery stall, chicken in da bag, as well as an All Things Curry stall and locally made ice-cream of various flavors.


“Of course we can’t do without our cakes and pastries at an occasion such as this, so this year we intend to make this stall even bigger and better,” said Mrs. Betty Smith, president of the church’s Guild to Help the Sick and Needy. “Our Guild goes all out to provide cakes, pastries, pies and tarts of every description and we expect no less this year


“Of course, we will have games of chance including bingo, white elephant, hoop-la and punch board where a number of great prizes will be available,” said Archer. “And finally the evening ends with a bang when members of the word famous Valley Boys hold their annual rush-out at 6:00 PM.


“Even more important that the funds we hope to raise, is the opportunity to fellowship with each and to get to know each other better,” said Fr. Scott Brennen, Priest-In-Charge  of the parish.
