The St James Parish Church will hold its annual fete on Saturday.

Pots and pans, books and music, and lots of brick-a-brack will be on sale at the church from 8:30am until 1pm.
Parishioner Pam White says the fete's proceeds will go towards much needed modifications on the church.
"We have just recovered from a white ant infestation, and we also intend to pay for a few more reverse cycle air conditioners," Ms White said.
Fete organiser Graham Howe said that this was the church's main fundraiser for year.
"It's a chance for the community to support the church," he said.
"It's the only surviving church in the South at the moment."
A sausage sizzle, cake stall and a kiddies corner will be just some of the stalls there on Saturday.
The fete and garage sale is on at 143 Wilson Street, opposite Patton St Park.
