Thank you to all our crafters who baked yesterday but an especially big thank you to Dan for his spanokopeta, Emma for her carrot cake, Penny for her rock cakes, Sal for her coffee and walnut cake, Liz for her home made super fancy jaffa cakes and white chocolate e& banana loaf... you guys didn't have tables at the fair you baked because you are complete and utter gems. Thank you also to Sonia for her pizza muffins, Sarah

Fingers crossed that's all our fab bakers :) We couldn't do it without you. Thank you
My camera was dying yesterday so I took very few photos. Luckily Penny and Simon had their cameras but as a result I have no pictures of the Croft's olympic face-painting :(
We had an amazing day. The fair is primarily about bringing people together and having a good time but it is also a fundraiser for the hub's activities and even though the hub wasn't as busy as it has been in the past we made more money than ever before for the second time in a row. I am buying some exhibition gadgets this month as I have promised a wonderful man called Malcolm that in Septemebr he can exhibit some work from a recent project he ran. So thank you for coming and shopping and eating. You have helped to put on an exhibition which will mean an awful lot to some very special people. Good job!
I would like to say an extra thank you to Verity helped to run the cake stall and who stayed to tidy up with her fabulous family; to Eleanor who came to help on the cake stall; to Hannah who read stories to the little ones and to Sonia who helped to tidy up too.
I'm off to get myself a camera :)
