Visitors from Canada & Jumble Sale Success

Visitors from Nova Scotia

Our surprise visitors from Kentville Nova Scotia, Laura Churchill Duke, husband David (who took the picture) and children Daniel and Thomas.

“We cannot thank you enough for your amazing hospitality yesterday in Goosnargh! We have been raving about our trip to everyone who will listen!”
                               –  Laura Churchill Duke

In a space of just a few hours the family met villagers preparing for the jumble sale, including Andy and Be Thiele (pictured with Steph and David Butters) visited St Mary’s Church & Goosnargh Oliverson’s, enjoyed Fish and Chips from Jill at Goosnargh Chippy and visited Tom and Mary Ibison in their cottage.

Laura had prepared questions about our Festival and the Community and will be writing and broadcasting back home in Nova Scotia. The children attend KCA (Kings County Academy) in Kentville and remember our visits in connection with the Twinning.

Thank you to all who sent cards, information etc at such short notice.

Jumble News

Record Breaker!!!
Wow! Massive thanks to the Community for your amazing generosity. The goods donated set us on track to beat all previous totals for the Jumble Sale which raised over £1500!

Thank you to all our volunteer helpers, the hard work most certainly paid off; and very special thanks to those who coped with the challenging task of charity shopping the last of the unsold goods once the clearer had left.

Our next Sale is on Saturday 14th October 2017 – please put the date in your diaries now.

Overheard at the Sale:

“Look what he’s bought! Motorcycle leathers! He’s going to kill himself now!!”

The Jumble Sale Needs You!

The jumble sale is fast approaching, starting Saturday Morning (18th March) in the Village Hall. If anyone is available to volunteer their help it would be greatly appreciated!

Please contact us either through the website, or talk to a festival committee member for more information.
