Winter Wonderland thank yous

Is it really almost a week ago? A huge thank you to everyone who helped, donated raffle prizes, baked cakes, helped set up and clear away, took a stall or just came to support our Winter Wonderland Fair last Saturday. It was much appreciated!

The whole event was relaxed and enjoyable and in terms of fundraising was a big success, with takings of over £2100 before expenses, so it will be a big boost for PA funds. Most of our 50+ stallholders had a good day and are keen to come to our summer fete next May.

We hope you all enjoyed this event as much as we did – and thanks again! More pictures of the Fair were on the blog last weekend.

Joy Elsley, PA Chair

These pictures were taken just as we opened at 10 this morning and it’s already getting busy! Free entry and free parking.
