The Annual Tarring Church Market is at The Old Palace, Tarring at 9.30 am on Saturday May 30th.
The market is held by the Parish Church annually under a Royal Charter and is managed by the Parochial Church Council (PCC).
In recent years, the stalls, providing gifts, cakes, preserves, bric-a-brac, a grand draw, games, garden plants, books, toys, handicrafts and refreshments, have realised about £5,000 each year. Some of this money has been used for repairs and improvements to the fabric of the church building.
In 2009, one-third of the proceeds was given to the St Barnabas Hospice in Worthing, and in 2012 the proceeds went towards providing wheelchair accessible toilet facilities in the church. In 2013 the proceeds were just over £6,300 and were distributed between Guild Care, St Barnabas House and for the maintenance of the church building. The 2014 proceeds were shared with the Alzheimer’s Society.
The Old Palace is in Glebe Road, Tarring, Worthing.
