The Village Summer Fair

Hello. The weather held out for us today, as you can see we had sunshine. It was a typical village summer fair, people came out to support their local charities. There were games to win something, stalls to buy something, music to dance to, food to scoff, and lots of chatting with friendly people. I think I probably saw all the people I know in one afternoon. I was dead chuffed when someone stopped by to say hello and said she reads this blog. So, hello again blog reader, it was nice to meet you. 


The ever popular WI home made cake stall.


The refreshment tent was busy as usual. Enjoying a cuppa on a lazy Saturday afternoon.


We did very well on the stall, I got Janet to take this photo just as we were starting to pack away, hence why there are gaps on the table, it was full when we started. I sold 11 out of 13 shopping bags, and one lady bought five cat beds. Janet and Sue did a tombola which did very well..

So, it was a good day all round, we made quite a lot for the cat rescue, and it was fun doing it.

Tomorrow will be another busy day. I'll be up early filling the Summer House with my art, must be ready to meet people at 10.30 when they start arriving.

Thanks for popping in, enjoy your Sunday. we'll catch up soon.

  11. So rewarding when things like your bags and beds get sold, makes all the work worthwhile.

  13. Beautiful weather for your Village Summer Fair. Thank-you for sharing your day. What a great all round team effort. Lots of people doing their bit...a very nice sense of community. Great that you met a blog reader. I met a blogger that I follow in our local Op Shop last year and still remember how thrilled I was to meet her in person. Congratulations on a wonderful effort with your stall. Great that the bags and cat beds sold so well. (Now you can make more!!) Cheers Jo
