Killyleagh Summer Festival

Pictured at the Killyleagh Summer Festival are the Rector, Rev Colin Darling, along with the lucky winner of a hamper of luxury drinking chocolate products, Ms Hilary MacKenzie. Hilary’s name was drawn towards the end of a memorable afternoon at the first Killyleagh Summer Festival, held in the grounds of Killyleagh Castle.

The hamper of award-winning Posh Hot Chocolate was donated to the parish church, where Sir Hans Sloane himself was baptised in the 17th century, by the Sir Hans Sloane London Drinking Chocolate Company.

All in all, it was a wonderful day for the whole community of Killyleagh and for all those who visited Killyleagh for the Festival. The Parish Church was grateful to Killyleagh Community Association for the opportunity to raise funds for the New Hall through the Cake Stall and Posh Hot Chocolate hamper raffle.
