Buckland St Mary church fete July 2012

On Saturday it teemed with rain all day long.  What a day to be the  date of the Buckland St Mary church fete this year.  Luckily this was to be held inside the church instead of in the grounds of Buckland House as in previous years, so someone must have had some forethought to keep us dry.

Hubby and I were running the book stall.  It was a challenge setting up all the books we had across the pews, a bit difficult to display them to their best, but we had a go.

We didn’t do  badly taking £65.00 inspite of the lower than usual turn out in the rain. Mind you we were selling paper backs at only 50p each so everyone who came along got a bargain.  Neil’s sister had come down to visit us and she not only brought us loads of books but also helped out on the stall.

There were quite a few other stalls, bottle tombola, bric a brac, jams and marmalade stall, plant stall, cake stall to name a few and afternoon tea and cake was also on offer.  So inspite of the weather we had a good time. Neil and I were left with quite a few books, so we took them down to the Ferne Animal Sanctuary charity shop in Chard on Monday morning, so they can sell them and make some money. We were the right people to ask to do the book stall and as both Neil and I love books and have several bookcases of them in our home.  We also offer our B&B guests to browse our books as they are on the landing outside the guest bedroom. If you want to see for yourself,visit us at www.lodgehousebandbsomerset.co.uk
