What a splendid time we all had at this year’s Ludgvan Open Village Day on Sunday!
Our stall was chock-a-block with gorgeous hand-crafted items, jams, books and plants. It really did look fantastic, especially with our bunting-clad gazebo and our banner proudly displayed.
If you weren’t there, you certainly missed a treat. There were 21 open gardens, varying from stunning grand lawns to tucked-away pocket gardens. We heard a jazz band, a choir and more. Sausages, barbecued fish, cake and ice cream were all on offer for those with appetites. Fantastic artwork was on display in the church, including some lovely pieces by our own talented Rosemary Gries.
The day was held to raise funds for the Murley Hall Development Fun (of particular interest to us), Cornwall Wildlife Trust and ACE (Aid Conservation through Education), all very worthwhile causes. We’ve been told that a grand total of £2,581.09 was raised!
As for Crowlas & Ludgvan WI, we raised over £100 – which still leaves us with £80 after making a contribution to the day’s fundraising. We should all be very proud of ourselves, both for adding to our own coffers and for helping to support some really worthwhile causes.
Thank you to everyone who worked on the stall, made and donated items to sell, and to those who stopped by to say hello as well!
Thanks to Mary and Ruth for the lovely photos!
