Cinnamon and cloves and Christmas spirit filled the air at St James church last week for a Gingerbread House workshop, a fundraiser for the Anglican Parish of Broken Hill and the Far West.
“It was more a social event and it was good for people to get out after lockdown and do something different, a bit creative,” said the event organiser, Reverend Helen Ferguson.
Gingerbread Folk supplied the premium kits, which were assembled and decorated by individuals, couples and children with their parents or grandparents, for family bonding.
“Some are taking the kits to family at Christmas time and they’ll make them when they get there,” said Reverend Helen.
She said that all who attended the workshop loved it and are hoping for more events next year and that it was “a good, fun night.”
One young girl carefully wrapped her decorated gingerbread house with her grandmother and picked it up.
“She had so many lollies on it, it collapsed,” said Reverend Helen.
“But the family at home ate it and enjoyed it.
“It doesn’t have to be perfect.”
