Summer Fair – A Great Success
me&dee Summer Fair
This was our first attempt at a craft and gift fair since we had to cancel our Christmas Fair in December 2020 due to Covid-19. Once again our friends at Butler's Pantry Derby sponsored the event and provided afternoon teas as well as delicious savoury snacks.
The event blossomed in to a craft, gift and food fair in the end with 28 stalls attending and after a targeted flyer/poster campaign in the immediate area we were rewarded with a great attendance from local people, also a chance to catch up with our supporters and some of the families we have supported over the years.
The charity were delighted to invite councillor Sheila Hicklin to open the Fair and soon after the people started to arrive, Covid measures were in place for everyone which made the warm conditions a little testing for the stall holders.
As you can see from the photo's there was plenty to see, with a great mixture of stalls and some very talented people along with local food and drink on offer.
We are delighted to announce that the charity will be holding a Christmas event on the 28th November 2021, our stall holders have already been confirmed and we look forward to welcoming everybody back for some festive spirit.
