Our Antiques Evening came close to cancellation when we had no bookings on the morning of the event. However, a single booking for four places during the morning persuaded the Executive to plough ahead and, surprise, surprise, we had 14 people attending, all with an assortment of objets d’art for appraisal and valuation. This therefore turned out to be an enjoyable and interesting evening and would have been slightly less worrying for the Executive if more people had indicated their intention to attend.
Our thanks to Michael and Frances Welch, residents of the village, who provided the antiques expertise and an extra thank-you to Nick Allen our local historian and author who was able to add nuggets of local information to some of the items being examined.
The evening raised £136 towards our fund-raising target from entrance fees and additional valuation fees and all left feeling they had enjoyed a most interesting evening.
