Tthe SUN SHONE on our SAFARI MARKET

`
37 Garage sales last year- This year the sign says 45, but in the end
WE HAD 55 (Fiftyfive) What a day- the sun shone, around 500 people came into the village, and had a great time.
The NEARLY NEW BOUTIQUE with its Bridal Display was run by Janice Butler, Mary Henderson and Jean Kelly and had over 550 items on sale and was a great success.
The place was buzzing all day, the changing room and mirrors in great demand.
Three local WI's from Bearsted and Leeds sold delicious homemade cakes and craft from the Lance memorial Field and all cakes were sold out long before closing time.
Edna and Anna selling their well known Jams Preserves and Chutneys from Tanyard Green
Plenty of time to stop and stare at this hand worked wood, during this slow shopping day (also on Tanyard Green)
At Jack's Lane we found the Young entrepreneur of the year.Getting to know the neighbours and their bric a brac, in an area unknown to most residents.


In Hasteds Mary and Barbara, had punters finding their bargains underneath the stall.

Some sellers were lucky and some not so lucky,( but naming no names), we understand that one stall holder - sold a Piano and another her entire collection of 45's records - (for undisclosed sums) and made enough profit for a decent celebration.
