Buckland St Mary Church Fete

Saturday was the Buckland St Mary church fete.  It was glorious sunshine and the fete was held in the ground of Buckland House in the open so we were really lucky with the weather.  Last year it poured with rain all day and we held the fete in the church.

I was on the book stall again, with Neil’s sister Carole who had come down for the weekend.

It was a bit slow selling books, maybe because many people have a kindle these days, but we raised £47.50.  My friend Sandra was on the bottle tombola which is always popular.

Our next door neighbour was one of the ladies on tea and cake which again always sell well.

There was a cake stall, a jam stall, children’s tombola, bric-a-brac, jewellery, crafts, plants, cards and skittles. I won a plant in the raffle and Carole won a hamper. At 3 pm our Buckland Community choir did a few numbers.

All in all we raised £1700 which is not bad for 2 hours in the afternoon.

We still have some vacancies in July in the bed and breakfast.
