I was met by Chris Fazakerley the organiser who explained how the Day had grown. The Baptist church are on good neighbourly terms with the RC Primarily School, St George's, on whose playing fields the event is held.
The first thing anyone tells you about Maghull Baptists is that they are famous for their baking. Well, in my experience church fairs are amongst the very best place to get good baking but nothing had prepared me the sheer quantity and quality of the cakes that arrived in the refreshment tent. All were freshly baked.

I was shown round the Chapel and the two hall-one a sports hall land the other a community room with excellent kitchen facilities. I met a former Minister who had come back in retirement to Maghull. He was telling me about the churches link with Moldova. It was good to hear that the members compassion was not limited to these islands and that the internationalist values that have always been a part of non conformity are alive and well.
As I was about to leave and just before I had time to grab one of the very fine hot dogs from the barbeque I was accosted by two ladies from a health food stall who were keen to get me to try one of their smoothies.......
