Well, it’s all over now, as Mick Jagger sang, and though we haven’t counted the money yet the seems to have been a success, even though we had to cope with gale force winds and a number of stall holders who didn’t turn up.
Despite a planning process best described as “suck it and see” we managed to fill the barn with stalls, take money and provide food for all who wanted it. In fact, we probably managed to fill the barn because of the lack of planning – if all the stallholders had turned up we would have been overcrowded.
As usual, I have a head full of ways we can improve, and, as usual, I will forget most of them before I remember to note them down.
As you may be able to see, it was a day of fun and poor photography.
However, Santa has expressed his willingness to come again next year, so despite the minor imperfections in the day it looks like we’ll be doing it again in 2016.
