Kempston Fun Day – Saturday 23 August

A group of Committee Members met early in the morning at the Addison Centre Car Park to set up our stall for the Fun Day.  It was chilly and the grass was damp but the weather forecasters had promised a fine and dry day.  The time flew by as we erected our gazebo, displayed our tombola prizes and put up posters and notices on the information boards.  Before we knew it the public had started to drift in and we were underway!  We had books and floristry sundry items for sale, a marble game involving an upturned plant pot and a spoon, flower arrangements (excellently made by Sandra and Jean), and the main attraction which was a locked box and a bag of keys, the idea being to pick 3 keys out of the bag and try to open the door.  Successful participants then chose a tombola ticket to determine their prize.  By lunchtime more people had turned out and the sun was shining.  The books and plant pot game were very popular and we were kept very busy counting marbles and talking to passers by.  All too soon it was 4pm and time for us to pack away.  We were all tired but pleased with the day and made over £70 profit for the club as well as raising awareness of our group and hopefully attracting one or two new people to come along on a Tuesday evening.  Below are a few photo’s from the day:
