On Saturday 7th September I hosted the Kidsgrove Vintage Fayre at the Kidsgrove Victoria Hall. The event was a huge success with lots of businesses attending to sell their vintage wares. I made an appeal for raffle prizes and well over 20 individuals, groups and organisations donated prizes. The Mayor’s charity made £400 and the Kidsgrove Tesco charity of the year, Diabetes UK made £150. Many people commented on how different this type of event was for Kidsgrove. We tried to avoid bric a brac to offer something more upmarket for the people of the town. Following on from our success we have decided to hold this each year and we will continue to build on our events and celebrations.
Thank you to all of the volunteers that made the events possible including Cllr Elliot Ashton and Mrs Ashton, Cllr Janet Parsons, Deputy Mayor David Allport, Tracy and Sam Holdcroft, Cllr Sylvia Dymond (shining bright like a Dymond!), Kate Coleman, Monica Mannion and many more. These events wouldnt be possible if it wasnt for the support we get from these fantastic people. Enjoy the photographs below.
A special thank you to Simon White of the Old Hall in Madeley who donated a £180 stay at the Charles II Suite with breakfast. This helped us raise lots of money for a good cause and Mr Michael Page claimed the prize.
