Wonderful feedback from the public – thank you for your support. Comments have ranged from they love the personal touch from our artists and crafters to make individual items to order; the personal service they receive; the prices are so reasonable; it’s so great to see the recreation grounds being put to good use; fun for the children to bounce on the rides or have their faces painted; New Forest Ice Creams from “Brock Ice” and really good food & coffee from “Jimmy Bean”; great music from the NF Town Band. These were just some of the comments we received.
From next week we will have a children’s illustrator and story teller with puppets; art recreation therapy group will be working with children and adults; and a magician – just for fun!
Our first day was blessed with good weather – long may it last. The music was great and the audience really appreciated it – chilling in the sun in a deck chair or dancing to live music. The dogs, the children – some playing football, older ones practising their rugby throws, mums & dads enjoying time out, cyclists, yachties & the sailing fraternity, visitors from London and elsewhere – a delightful mix of our world.
On a sadder note two of our banners were stolen, and some of the notices on Moore Blatch railings were torn down. So its not all plain sailing.....
