Recent FA events – thank you!

Just a note to thank you if you were someone who helped set up and/or dismantle for the recent Open Garden event, served refreshments and/or donated baking, or came along for tea and cake.

The weekend was a huge success, and there will also be a donation from Robin Loxam from the entrance charge, the remainder of which is going to the NGS charity.

Please let me know if you are still missing a cake tin or tea towel!

Thank you also to the team that organised the Goods and Promises Auction and for those of you who attended and dug deep into your pockets – the evening was great fun and more money was raised in 3 hours than has ever been raised at any other Fairfield event over the past 17 years! Awesome.

And not forgetting the lovely concert organised by local choir HumHoller’n’sing, a joyous occasion, the venue was packed resulting in a very generous donation to the Fairfield Association, thanks to all involved.

Sponsored swim
I have recently heard that two of our supporters are doing a 5km (200 lengths) sponsored swim, at Lancaster university, this Saturday (23rd June) to raise money for the Fairfield Association. A big thank you to both of you for this incredible effort and for supporting us this way: http://www.justgiving.com/Jill-Johnson1.

This boost to the Fairfield Association coffer from all these events is much appreciated as there have been some major expenses on playground repairs and still some costs related to the storage shed and there will be costs associated with the Flora fields nature reserve.

Thanks for all your support and wishing you a lovely summer.
