Friday saw May’s Kitchen (hallway, sitting room and garden) turn from a comfortable (read messy) family home, into a hive of Christmassy activity. The decorations went up, coffee was made and an incredible array of homemade cakes donated.
We were lucky to have a dry, reasonably fair late November day. Myself and six other talented local ladies brought out our homemade wares and displayed them amongst the pots, pans and cookery books in my kitchen.
The local community, from Chainhurst, Marden and beyond came along to support us – what an amazing turnout!
Thank you to everyone.
You all even managed to find my house- no mean feat when some from Marden haven’t heard of Chainhurst..
The coffee was drunk, the cakes were devoured and the chatter so loud you could hardly hear the old Christmas classics playing in the background!
But that’s what I had in mind- a relaxed coffee morning with friends with the opportunity to buy some nice pressies while you were nattering.
That’s my kind of shopping..seems lots of you enjoyed it too.
I’ve already decided to do it again next year- perhaps a summer fair too?
I’m still sweeping up cake crumbs, but it was worth it!
