The sun shone, the ceilidh band ‘Fairgreen’ played, people danced, the BBQ and bar and stalls were busy, teas and cakes consumed, and everyone enjoyed themselves.And we have been able to add the magnificent sum of £1250.71 to our funds to assist with the costs of maintaining our Village Hall.With many thanks to everyone for their support and assistance; for the wonderful raffle prizes; and lots of help behind the scenes by many people – thank you!An especial thank you to Mrs. Knights (Laxfield House), Lady Getty (Lavenham Brook Farm), Mr & Mrs Stephens (Brent Eleigh Hall), and James Davis (The Cock Inn).
