The weather was dry, the children's performances were amazing and the ducks swam. From all the feedback we've had, you all had a really good afternoon. The monies have all been counted and checked and we made absolutely amazing £1,385! We would like to say a huge thank you to all the parents and staff who helped with the setting up and packing up of the Fayre, and manned stalls for the afternoon. We hope you all enjoyed it too. We would also like to specially thank Mark for MCing for us, Helen for First Aiding all afternoon, Simon for the use of his truck, and Andy, Amber, Dan, Martin and Tim, who braved the River Bovey to rescue the ducks for us! I know we often say this but we really can't run this kind of event without your help. We would also like to say a special thank you to Chris at the Jolly Roger for the loan of his brilliant statues once again, and to Event Hire Solutions for the portaloos. Also to all the businesses who supported for our new Barrow o' Booze stall; Complete Independent Estate Agency, Coombes & Sons, The Cheese Shed, Spar Gilletts Callington Ltd, Bovey Dental Practice, The Dolly Tub Launderette, Loughtons Independent Financial Advisers and Palmer & Radclyffe.
