A message from Sarah Allitt ….

“Some of you may remember the Midsummer Madness Fairs which were held in 1999 and 2000 which were great fun and well supported. This year I thought I would hold another Garden Fair but do things a bit differently. I intend to combine the fair with my second art exhibition entitled “The Art of Evolution”.

I am pleased that Susie Taylor, founder of Fino Olive Oil, is helping give the fair a boost. So far we have 11 stallholders with products ranging from Olive oil and vinegars, fabrics and cushions, antique furniture and accessories, to garden and interior products and textiles, contemporary silver jewellery, Bridge in the Box, Silk flowers, and cards.

A percentage of the sales will go to Breast Cancer UK. We will also provide a café society atmosphere with specialist coffees and teas, Lily the cupcake van and local products for you to enjoy whilst you are here.

I am really looking forward to showing you my latest collection of artwork which will reflect my typical style and will include cityscapes, landscapes, florals, still life and portraits.

So please come along on Friday 13th May, from 9.30am to 3.30pm ”
