CUMQUAT shortage: Anyone who has 1⁄2 - a full bucket of cumquats would be appreciated by Pam Duthie as the CumquatMarmalade is getting low AND there’s still 2 months to theCHURCH FAIR! Ring Pam or bring them to church.
THANK YOU to all those who bring along their empty jars for me. Without them this stall would not exist! Please continue a little longer.
The stall will be operating at the 2018 Fair and all donations are thankfully received. From 2019 the stall will not be operating as in the past but it is hoped to have a small stall for the Fair.
THANK YOU to all our SUPPORTERS!
Many thanks to those who have already donated new items to the Gift Stall for this year's fete. The large box for donation of further items is in the hall near the honey table. Regardless of how long you have had them any items that are new, undamaged and commercially produced are welcome and will hopefully be sold to go to a new home. Any packaging, tags or pricing with an item are welcome but not essential.
On the day of the Fair you will be able to buy new gifts for yourself or for others and what is not sold will go to Uniting Barwon for their Christmas gift distribution or be sold in their shops. We welcome toys, books and games, kitchenware and other household items, clothing that is packaged or has tags attached, accessories, toiletries, stationery, outdoor items etc. Any new handmade items are welcomed by the Craft Stall.
An extra helper would be welcome for half an hour or so on the day. Please speak to me if you could assist there or if you need items collected. All pricing is done by me beforehand. Thanks, Alwyne
GARDEN HELPERS: Keep potting up cuttings! Naming the plants is such a help too. Please contact Raye for any donations.
From now until the fair there will be plants and seedlings for sale on the tables next to the jams etc. Currently there are flowering Violas, Kalanchoe (doubles) about to flower, new Rhubarb plants. People are welcome to bring along their plants for sale for the fair.
WATCH THIS TABLE as it will vary from week to week!
