This Saturday just gone was the day of the Buckland St Mary Xmas fete and we were on the Bric a Brac stall again. We had lots of stuff – some friends were moving house and had cleared out a lot of glass ware and crockery and we had lots of books and other donations too. This is me behind our stall.
Neil is a very good salesman and tries to sell mostly inappropriate things to people we know, just for fun. However we did really well and took £77.00 in 2 hours.
Children had the chance to visit Father Christmas (a local man from the village who dressed up the part), and afternoon teas and cake were also on offer.
There was a tombola stall, a craft stall, a picture stall amongst others together with the usual raffle (I won a Xmas pudding – home made). Altogether £945 was raised for the church youth worker, so a good effort all round, and an early December start to get us in the Christmas mood.
We have vacancies in the B&B for the whole of December. contact us at http://www.lodgehousebandbsomerset.co.uk
