Festive Fete

Here are some photos from last Sunday's WI Christmas fete. The day was so much fun, though very hectic! There were crafty stalls and vintage, a Viva Cake tea room and a Christmas tree decorated with pearls and floral fabric decorations floral. There were carol singers, a very talented double bassist and the well stocked WI produce stall which J and I ran for most of the day. I don't think I sat down once in the whirl of labelling jam and pricing baked goods, laying out tablecloths and arranging stall displays. Not to mention all the clearing up at the end! All photos by M who was absolutely wonderful, not only taking all these photos (I didn't have time!), but also giving up most of his day to help out with stringing up bunting, carrying heavy items from the street to the hall and all sorts of other odd jobs that really can't be much fun if you are a guy with no interest whatsoever in the WI. Thanks M and to everyone else who came along!

  5. Can't claim credit for the gingerbread men, not made by me, but they were very impressive and tasted delicious too!
