AUTUMN FAIR Thank you to those who have offered to co-ordinate the individual stalls for the
Fair. A meeting will be held in the near future with the staff co-ordinators and others, who may wish to be involve d, to discuss plans for the day.
Please save magazines and ‘coffee table’ type books that can be displayed and sold through the morning Tea Stall. These items can be delivered to the Abbott Room on the morning of the Fair. Have you considered ‘potting’ herbs for sale at the Plant Stall? I’m sure that a “healthy” herb section of our Plant Stall would be well received. Do you have any friends or contacts who may be interested in attending the Fair and providing extra Stalls on the day? Maybe jewellery or similar that would not conflict with our own stalls. A fee, yet to be decided, would be charged for their attendance on the day.
We are planning to have a display of “Wedding gowns from the Past”, to coincide with the Autumn Fair. These gowns will be displayed on ‘shop style mannequins’ in the Chapter House-with a small fee being charged to view the display. The gowns do not need to be in perfect condition to be of interest for those viewing the display. I have my mother’s wedding gown and that will be included in the display. If you have access to any gowns that may be of interest, or thoughts as to other activities/stalls that could be included as part of the Fair, could you please contact me on 63322822. I would be most willing to listen to any of those suggestions. Many thanks, Elizabeth Magee
