Autumn Sale Update

It is now just two weeks to the Oakham Autumn Sale on Saturday 17 November, 9:30am to 12noon. This is your opportunity to take stock at home and to bring in any good, saleable items for our stalls. There will be the usual bric-a-brac, preserves, handicrafts, tombola, candles, cake stalls, and a separate jewellery and cosmetics stall.

There is also a plant/gardening/environmental stall, so any plants you could donate, especially bee-friendly, alpines or ground cover, would be welcome – Araminta (01572 757827) is running this, and would also welcome terracotta pots that she could upcycle and any old canes.

We would like to have a really attractive children’s stall to tempt the youngsters. Quality toys no longer used would be most welcome. There will be a children’s bran tub so any good little items would be useful to promote this as a fun activity. Have a clear out before the Christmas presents appear! We do not want books, CDs or DVDs this year, but puzzles would be very useful. Please bring items to the church and leave them safely in the parish office or give them to any of the small Steering Group named below who are organising the Sale this year. There are still a few publicity leaflets on the table by the South Door. Please take a packet or two to distribute if you can.

Thank you to the many who have helped with this so far.

Patsy Clifton, Sally and Dennis Corton, Elaine and Graham Peel, Liz and Richard Plummer.
