Nancy Buck: October 2015
Saturday 28th November, 10am — 12 noon
The date is drawing closer and a selection of stalls are planned. The following would welcome donations of goods to sell:-
-Cakes Ruby Dickinson (01420 87633)
-Fancy Goods Brenda Milam (01420 22216)
-Toiletries Girls' Brigade
-Toys Jennie Marlow (01420 85698)

In addition, the BB Company boys will be running games in the Hall, Sheila Wooding will have a range of cards and other craft items, Karen Booker will be selling jewellery, the BB Juniors will have their usual attractive stall of sweets and other items they have made, and the Café will be there to refresh all weary shoppers.
It is not too late to get involved if you would like to help run a stall or activity, or even offer to help with the set-up and clear-up. I'm currently looking for someone to run the café — any volunteers?
We will be setting up after BB (9.30pm) on Friday 27th November, so can receive items for sale then or on Saturday 28th from 9am. Some small items for sale may be left at the church from Thursday 26th November but please be aware that the Boys' Brigade use all the rooms on a Friday evening! If you would like to have items collected, please contact the relevant stall-holder or me.
