Saturday, 14th September saw our annual Harvest Home and even though numbers were down, we still managed to raise £560 for the Senior Citizens Fund in the village.
Terry Trip was our ace auctioneer and he did such a good job we had to slow him down! As ever, produce and generosity from the village and Beaufort regulars was amazing and we had plenty of goodies to go around.
I can’t begin to thank everyone who contributed and bid enough, but I will single out Lady Hyacinth once again who despite being poorly did a fantastic job again with her ploughmans and puddings.
Lots of others contributed as well, including Dave and Ann, Biggus Dickus and Fiona, Chris and Sal, Josie and Keith, Brian Noble, Derek Watts, ‘Lizzie’s luscious plums‘ and a host of others (but please forgive me if I missed you out – my memory’s not what it was).
Terry was helped by Fiona selecting the goods and Big Dave collecting the money and Sam and Liz kindly did the raffle (thanks team).
I was determined to win the Wallace and Gromit lunchbox but if it wasn’t for Julie Blackwell letting me buy it at the end it wouldn’t be resplendent on our top shelf where it is now.
Huge thanks to everyone who came along, bid, and had a bit of fun. Another memorable night.
