Apple Pie Fair 2014

Sunday 21st September 2014

The Apple Pie Fair was a wonderful sunny family funday with over 350 people attending and lots of apple pie and cream!

The project committee for the community hall project would like to thank everyone for attending and supporting the day and welcome any feedback from event goers!

The afternoon generated an income from entrance fee, stalls and activities of over £1200 so once all the costs have been covered the events will have raised funds for the project as yet to be calculated. Full details will be here and in the community hall minutes and some of the expenses paid for now will have covered items for futrure events.

The project committee are delighted that residents and visitors supported the event enthusiatically and took part in the competitions and races; so children time to start practicing for the longest apple peel for next year!

The big Ideas Apple for a new Community Hall had a great selection of ideas and we will be collecting these together and a link posted here on your community website.

The project Committee would like to thank all the volunteers, sponsors, competition winners who donated their winnings to the project and people who gave items for the amazing raffle and tombola.

If you would like to be involved in planning the next event for next Spring/Summer or if you would like to volunteer to help set up or run a stall please contact the project secretary.
