Thanks to all your many wonderful contributions to our stall in the Artisan Market, Clifton WI made £150 from this event. Home baking and preserving from WI members still has a particular appeal and it was notable how many of our customers stopped by and bought because of the WI reputation. It helped as well that our stall was the most attractive and vibrant one there, according to one customer!

Victoria spent much of the day recruiting in her usual inimitable fashion, and we confidently expect some new visitors as a result.

As for the dog show, our very own Jane Thomas confesses she was in doggy heaven as one of the judges. Jane reports:

Canine Chaos, but many wagging tails, happy owners and dog treats.
Canine comedy with 40 odd dogs all trying to do a quickest sit, and the best dog trick was won by one who could dance on her hind legs, followed by the husky who could woof on demand.
Odd how many people were proud to enter the owner who looks most like their dog! (AND THEY DID!!!)
