The fate of the Fete; and what I found in the garden...
9 June 2016

I am surrounded by woods and countryside - well, apart from the neighbours! And one of them is a little visitor who keeps returning - happily not into the garden itself, where over zealous labradors abound...


So it's been all systems go for this Sunday's fete in aid of Medical Detection Dogs - go to the bottom of thiis to see the full list of what's on in the afternoon and also at the evening ticket only Supper Quiz, and for those who haven't heard me boring for England about it, the links are also there to find out more or to book the evening.

I must say i'll be pleased when it's done! It's been pretty full on with so much to organise and I'm really grateful for the team of helpers who have made it all more doable this year. Thanks in particular for the ladies who have created the just giving pages, Jan and Sara, plus lovely Sharon and Anne, both working overtime every day to publicise it. Garry for the signs, Chip for the Stakes, everyone for their donations too.

Together fashions sent me some super tops and dresses, some to sell and others which are for the fashion preview, as part of a little fashion show. Then Nina Leonard kindly sent a whole box of outfits to sell too, which will feature in the afternoon fashion extravaganza.

ps if you'd like to take part but you can't get there, guess what? The big summer Mega Draw is now on - wth all prizes worth over £50. Just go here to find out more - raffle info here.

Hope to see you there!
