After a week of glorious sunshine the weather forecasters predicted very heavy rainfall for the afternoon of the Strawberry Fayre on Saturday 28th June. And so it was…five minutes before the Fayre was due to open the heavens opened with some force! The decision made in the morning to move indoors was a good one and within minutes of opening the two lounges in Lord Harris Court were filled with busy shoppers and gamers.
The busy stalls, despite the rain, raised £1,550 from a wonderful collection of cakes, games, wine and water, tombola, Pimms (although not on the lawn as expected) and wonderful cream teas with strawberries.The Summer Draw tickets raised a further £2,300. All of which will go to enrich the lives of the residents of Lord Harris Court.
A full report and pictures will be in the September edition of The Link.
