Overbury Street Market made its annual appearance on Saturday 12th July 2014. The sun shone and villagers and visitors turned up in their masses to fit in as much shopping and fundraising as possible in the space of just two hours!
The ‘Going for a Song’ tables were a hive of activity as purchasers haggled for the best price, from garden furniture to wine glasses. This picture was taken before ‘the crowds’ arrived – the tables were nearly empty at the end!
Jake Freestone set up shop as a butcher for the day selling fresh Overbury Lamb.
The wonderful ‘Anne’s Pantry’ ladies sold a delicious selection of homemade cakes and jams.
And ‘The Ice-cream Girls’ did their best to keep everyone cool in the beautiful sunshine.
The Raffle was a huge success with generous gifts from our local residents. There was quite a selection but special thanks to Jude Dayne for the books and picnic backpack, Mark Linley for the gorgeous silver necklace, Bruce Bossom for the Champagne, Dagny Holland-Martin for the cool bag and especially Katie Hough for the beautiful picture, you can see more at her website at www.katiehough.co.uk
Our resident potter Toff Milway invited adults and children to ‘Throw-A-Wobbly’.
Other stalls that attracted lots of attention were the Bottle Stall, the Handbags and Accessories Stall, the Toy Stall and the Children’sTombola to name a few.
Mrs. Edward kindly opened her garden for tea and cakes to be enjoyed. Faith Hallett also opened her gardens for the Kitchen Stall and various fundraising activities for the school.
This year’s street market was a huge success and it is thanks to Andrew John and his loyal team who work hard months in advance to produce a lively, friendly and fun for all event in the heart of our beautiful village.
