The Village Fete, a place to meet friends

Hello. After all the rainfall we've had, thank goodness the weather was kind to us today and we were able to hold our Fete on the Village Green. It was the usual mix of stalls, games to win prizes, raffles, tombola, craft stalls, and of course the old favourite the WI cake stall. Yes I did cave in and bought a coconut tart, I am partial to a nice home made tart. 

The refreshment tent was a hive of activity. It's nice to sit and have a natter over a cuppa with your neighbours, not that I had time for any of that, I was too busy.

The ladies of the Hospice Supporters Club always do well. Pull a string and win a prize. 
It was lovely when the sun came out.

The new Chairman of the Parish Council dropped by to see us on our cat rescue stall. I have known Craig for many years, I used to work for him in his metal detecting business. I will put a link in here because he is a personal friend, and what he doesn't know about metal detecting isn't worth knowing. 
Two more visitors came to see me today. Blog readers Lesley and her daughter. They brought gifts for me, and some great things to sell on the stall. Thank you very much, I enjoyed meeting you.

And here is our stall. We have an extra pair of hands today, thank goodness, because I have been flitting about a lot. The giant leopard was the prize in a competition to guess it's name. As you can see we have a great selection of items to sell, all donated by kind people. We did very well for sales which will cover the cost of the cat food for a while. Fourteen of the shopping bags sold, and I tried my best to sell the last one, but there were no customers left, they had all gone home.

I also helped to set up the Village Hall for the Art Exhibition tomorrow. I shall be there in the morning at 10am with my artworks to display on my space.

I must do my walk tonight. I'm getting a bit behind with being busy with other things. I'd better get a move on, if I sit here for much longer I will be falling asleep. Thanks for popping in, we'll catch up soon.
