A WISHING well, which was a feature of an annual summer fair at a church in Hucknall, must have been used by the organisers.

For hopes of a successful event at St Peter and St Paul’s on Ruffs Drive came true.

More than £550 profit was made, to be ploughed into general church funds.

For £1, visitors could use the well and make their wishes. Everyone who took part was given an Easter egg, which was donated by Tesco.

Youngsters were entertained by cartoon characters Tom and Jerry, while two helpers dressed as leprechauns.

Other attractions included a bouncy castle, raffle, three tombolas, cake stall and a table selling children’s games and toys.

The event was notable for being the last summer fair under the Rev Daniel Njuguna. For the Kenyan-born priest is leaving to become vicar of Wednesbury in the Lichfield diocese in the West Midlands.

A farewell event will be held in his honour at St Peter and St Paul’s on Sunday July 24.
