What an amazing day and an outstanding success…
The numbers that attended far exceeded expectations. From hooking ducks to wellie wanging and chicken chucken an enormous amount of fun was had by all. The 3 duck races, on a shortened course due to the ‘hard going, went ahead with no casualties! By 4 o’clock almost everything was sold out including the excellent and delicious cakes that were home baked and donated to the Fair. Thank you. The scrumptious BBQ was also sold out with thanks to the chefs.
A full report will be included in the minutes of the next Reading Room Committee Meeting which is currently scheduled for Thursday 23rd September, but yet to be confirmed. In the meantime many thanks go to those who helped prepare for the day and to those who assisted on the day. It would not have been possible without you. A special thank you goes to Hilly Dobson whose drive and enthusiasm towards the benefit of our small community is unflagging and undaunted. She made the day the outstanding success that it was.
