Well, what fun that was!!
We had a good turn out of people wanting to make wreaths and everyone seemed to go home happy with what they had made. There were some really nice ones and we had some lovely comments. One lady who had been there with her two children, who all made wreaths, said, "We have been here an hour and a half and have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves", another lady said that last year she had been disappointed with one she made somewhere else locally which cost a lot more than our £2, so she gave us an extra donation.
The children also enjoyed themselves and came out with some beautiful things they had made, some lovely tree decorations made out of cones with glitter and raffia and lovely cards which would have put many shop bought cards to shame. Thank you so much to Jackie and Sandie who stepped in at the last minute when our craft tutor had to bow out due to ill health - you are both stars!!
The hot fruit punch went down a storm, freshly made, it was really nice and warming.
Fresh, locally made mince pies and cakes were also available.
We had a lovely stall there, Jo's Grows, which is popular at our Gala Day, selling home made jams and preserves, made mainly from local produce. Thanks Jo.
Angela from Angela's Creations, Greenwood road was also there with some lovely hand made jewellery.
Everyone was laughing and joking and it was so nice to see families doing things together.
We were very pleased that as it was the first time we had done this, it was so well attended and such an enjoyable event, both for the public and ourselves.
I would like to thank all our volunteers who gave their time to make it the success it was and also the public for coming to support us. Without you, we would not have had an event.
We will be putting some photos in the gallery shortly.
