Sheltering out of the rain
What an afternoon we had at our Open Garden last Sunday! It was sunny one minute and downpouring the next. So far we have raised £450 for our chosen charity Help the Child, with donations still coming in. I need to say thank to all of my team for doing a fantastic job in difficult circumstances. Thank you to Charlottes Tearooms for the yummy cream teas. Thank you to Matthew from The Wine Shop in Winscombe for the Pimms and lemonade, of which I had a very stiff one when the heavens opened and the thunder roared! Thank you to everyone from Help the child for helping set up the event for running the raffle stand. Thank you for everyone who made a cake for our cake stall, and thank you to all the local businesses who kindly donated prizes for the raffle! And a huge thank you everyone for coming, it really meant a lot to us all. It was such a shame about the weather!! It had taken us weeks to prepare the garden too. Sadie says we are going to do it again at the end of August!
It’s the RETAS Awards Today! We are thrilled to be in the Final of Best Non Specialist Card Retailer of the South West category. To have made the final is amazing! We are now off to The Dorchester, London today to see if we get another shiny award! Fingers Crossed for us please. We have to wear posh day frocks as the theme is a fairytale ball! We will keep you posted on how we get on….
