Autumn Gift Fair is a huge success …

Thank you again to all our kind and loyal shoppers who came along to support our annual Autumn Gift Fair. It was another huge success and the sum of £15,000 was raised.

This year, for the first time, the Gift Fair was held over two days, the evening of Tuesday 20th September from 5pm – 8.30pm and the daytime of Wednesday 21st September from 9.30am – 4pm. On the Tuesday evening, drinks and canapes were being served throughout the evening. On the Wednesday, tea, coffee, cakes and delicious lunches were being served and many shoppers took the opportunity to sit and enjoy the pretty gardens at Hillfields.

The Fair was held at the usual beautiful venue, Hillfields Farm, Upper Basildon, by kind permission of Nigel and Carol Steljes. Thank you to the Steljes family for their generous support.

Over 50 stalls were staged, selling a wide variety of unique products and gifts, ranging from clothes, fashion accessories & jewellery to toys & gadgets, a wonderful food hall and home & garden accessories.

Thank you to everyone who attended. It’s a wonderful achievement and the money raised is a great contribution towards Newbury RDA annual costs.
