The Fair Oak Carnival
This is the annual Parish Council-run public event to celebrate our Community. St Toms normally commit to provide marshals and attend ourselves through provision of at least one lorry-based float. This is normally held on the 3rd Saturday in June and runs from 1-2pm. The floats then terminate at The New Millennium Park in Shorts Road where a full fairground and associated Parish organisations show their wares and celebrate games in the central arena. We seek to present the gospel through our presentation on the float and seek to convey the variety of our Church life to sometimes as many as 3000 parishioners out in the village and by the roadside during the procession that day. We also seek to provide a stage presence in partnership with our Mission Partners Miracle Street at the Park from 2-4pm.
We then invite people to the Fair Oak Music Festival.
