Alton Webteam: March 2018
The May Market will take place on Saturday 12th May, 10am-12noon
Planning is underway for our spring fundraising event:-
â€¢ John Cresswell (01420 544034) will be running the plant stall (a major feature of this event) and would welcome contributions of home-grown plants, so if you can, please think of sowing some seeds or potting up some divisions for us to sell.
â€¢ Brenda Milam (01420 22216) will be running the fancy goods stall and would welcome donations of goods in advance, so she has time to price them. Do you have any presents which you have put aside but are just what someone else would like?
â€¢ Helen and Eric Smith (01420 544161) have valiantly agreed to run the book stall again, so do look out those thrillers you bought last year and won't read again and we'll happily recycle them! Helen is happy to collect books in advance.
â€¢ Kate Wilson (01420 83821) and Sonje Williams will be running the cake stall and will welcome contributions of home-baking.
â€¢ Judy Nicholls is putting together a team to provide the ever-popular refreshments.
As usual, the various rooms at church are in use most days and this year the Boys Brigade Annual Display will be taking place on the evening of Friday 11th May so all space will be in use that evening! We will be setting up for the fair after the display so goods to sell may be brought then (time to be confirmed) or on the Saturday morning from 9am. If you would like goods collected in advance, please contact the stall-holder or me.
If you have an idea for a new attraction or would like to volunteer to help, I would love to hear from you.
