Oakham Autumn Sale

It is now just three weeks to the Autumn 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. We are looking for the loan of small tables to be used in the refreshments area on the day. If you could help us with this we would be very pleased to hear from you.

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