Friends of Longhope church invited the award winning Odd Socks Entertainment Company from Liverpool to visit and perform and dazzle the townspeople of Longhope. The church was packed with families of all ages, watching a very hilarious, traditional, and entertaining modern twist production of the much loved fairy tale “Snow White”, the show was packed with adventure, fun, and laughter.

Tina Coull, chairman of The Friends of Longhope Church told the Gazette: “Seeing 240 people through the church doors, it was so good to be able to offer affordable entertainment on the doorsteps of many. It isn’t all about raising money all the time, seeing people having fun is the best feeling ever, a few pounds were raised by holding a raffle and tombola which will all go towards the Bell Tower Fund. £165K target, we have raised £132K, its been a very successful year, so a big final push for the remaining funds will start again next year.”

She added: “I would like to thank everyone who has supported the Friends of Longhope Church during 2022, its been a busy year but the support has been outstanding.”
