What a Show of Hands!

A merry evening was had by all at the Auction of Promises on Saturday 25th May, where the excellent cheeses, good wine and slick auctioneering from Piers Whiting of Luscombe May put everybody in good humour to bid for the 25 lots on offer. There was fierce bidding over the likes of loads of logs, massage, riding lessons, garden benches and horse manure, and everybody came away well pleased with their lot. It was also a good opportunity to meet up with people who had moved to the village recently.

A big thank you to all those who donated their time or skills so generously and also to all who volunteered to help. And well done James Drummond and Viv Whybrow who organised this excellent event. Well over £1,000 was raised, which will be put towards creating an interior porch for the church to improve insulation. Let’s have lots more!
