On Saturday 24th November, we held a Christmas Craft Fair at Chalfont Lodge. We had been working with the residents for months to prepare handmade items to sell.
We made lavender bags with lavender grown in the garden, homemade soap, Christmas potpourri, chocolate cones & little Christmas centrepieces. We had a raffle, which is always popular, and a tombola. We also had a stall from The Body Shop and Paul Burke, who keeps bees and sells honey & hand-turned wooden gifts.
It was an amazing day! We were very well-supported by residents, their families and friends, and we were all left feeling very festive. The mulled wine and homemade cakes were delicious & we sold nearly everything we made!
What a start to our Christmas season; we raised over £800, which we will be spending on garden projects next year.
Many thanks to everyone who helped – we couldn’t have done it without all the support.
