Saturday August 4th dawned bright and sunny for the Hotham Park Country Fair and for the BRWI stall and, as the temperature continued to climb to dizzy heights during the day, there was much relief that the allocated site was a shady one.
Under the gazebo stood a mountain of home-made cakes and lashings of chutneys, pickles, jams and marmalade. In addition there was a wide range of beautiful crafted goods from bags and mobiles to child knits and gloves.
The fine weather and the Fair’s many attractions ensured a constant stream of customers and before the end of the day the cakes (who can resist a WI cake!) had all been sold and there were very few preserves or hand-made items remaining.
It was a super day that was much enjoyed by the WI volunteers and those who came to support; many thanks to everyone who made it such a success. And the icing on the cake was the raising of £371.80, out of which we’ll make a donation to Friends of Bognor Hospitals, one of our selected charities this year.
