Our Autumn Fayer kicked off at 11am on Saturday. We had lots of stalls to visit and masses of goods to browse through. We were lucky with the weather and although we were threatened with scattered showers, apart from a few drops early on in the day the sun managed to shine most of the time. There were plants for sale in St Leonard’s courtyard and a corner dedicated to planting up daffodils, which was great fun especially for the children.
In the Church entrance we had Mavis with all her goods including some beautiful knitted garments that were very reasonably priced. We had books, videos and CD’s galore. We also had a child’s section displaying books and toys. In the hall we had a Fairtrade stall, (which I must admit succumbing too) and a stall filled with scrumptious home-made preserves and cakes.
St Leonard’s hall was mainly laid up for light lunches of soup and crusty bread along with a tasty array of cakes to choose from, and there was a side-stall just inside the door serving tea and coffee that was very welcome, especially for the stall holders.
Revd Carolyn thanks everyone who helped make the Autumn Fayre a great success, to those who helped set-up and clear away, to those who worked so hard in the kitchen and in the tea and coffee corner. A special thank you must go to all those who manned the stalls and to all the people who made cakes, preserves and items to sell.
Carolyn also thanks Sandra and David for organising the raffle that was held in the walkway between the Church and the Hall and for all the people who kindly donated gifts to the raffle stall. The Church raised around £870.00.
