Alton Webteam: February 2017
Saturday 13th May, 10am-12noon
Planning is starting for our spring fundraising event so please save this date in your diaries.
The range of stalls usually includes plants, books, cakes and fancy goods, with a café to refresh the weary shopper. Could you grow some plants for sale or put aside a few books you have read? It would also be good to be able to provide an activity for the children..
If you have an idea for a new attraction or would like to volunteer to help, I would love to hear from you.
