Summer Fayre 2010
The total amount raised this year from our Fayre in June was a little over £5,000. Congratulations to everyone who contributed to make this such a fine effort. Generally, most stalls and attractions raised slightly less money than the 2008 Fayre, with the exception of the Coconut Shy, the Bric a Brac stall, the Plant stall, Wet Sponges, icecreams, and the Pound in the Bucket. More details can be found on the noticeboard.
