The winner of our Big Day Our raffle was Linda from Pendle Road, the Heyland & Whittle hamper was worth £80!
We are really grateful for Paddy and Ursula’s continued support of FACE, they used to live in Furzedown and still have many connections here and happy memories. Their beautiful handmade products are very special and make perfect gifts.
it was amazing that so many people braved the weather to support our community festival, with locally produced beer and bread; crafts and therapies; as well as cake making competitions, sporting activities and charity stalls like ours and a great line up of local bands, music and dancing.
The Furzedown Festival survived incredible downpours and carried on regardless.
Despite the rain and cold we were kept really busy on our stalls selling Heyland & Whittle handmade soaps, bric-a-brac and books as well as a huge selection of plants grown by our green fingered experts Stuart and John.
Our gazebo coped very well at keeping the rain off!
But still the customers came….
When the sun did appear the atmosphere was great and people were very supportive, we sold most of the bric-a-brac and books and a lot of plants – although there are still some available for sale at 6 Chillerton Road if you missed out.
