Horwich Christmas Fair
Back in March this year, a tiny man called Sam came into the world. Dawn surprised me with a text the day after my birthday, saying he was here. He wasn't due for another five weeks. After a stay in the neo natal unit, he was home with his family and fit as a butcher's dog. A really small one. When she asked for my help to raise a bit of cash for the unit, I said yes without a moment's hesitation.
Granted, the Summer Fete nearly killed us. However, I found myself agreeing to do a Christmas one whilst still high from the euphoria of success. This time I was armed with a spreadsheet, and several lists!
We had such a great day. Crafters, knitters, bakers, puzzle makers, first time traders and some wonderful local folk came together at Horwich RMI to make an unforgettable day. We raised over £1000 for the unit (money is still coming in...), survived the icy chills of the Aspinall Suite and ate lots of cake.
We would both like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came or contributed, and to our friends who helped us; especially Jenny, Kev and Lucie, Clare and her girls, Corinne, Michelle and our long suffering families! Our husbands resisted divorcing us and our nerves remain intact.
Rather than blabber on much more, I'm going to let the pictures do the talking. Huge thanks to Carl Duffy who took most of these outstanding shots.
