All Saints Church Staplehurst Summer Fête Saturday 4th August 2018 from 12-4pm to be held in the grounds of Staplehurst Manor

'Evening Julia

I am afraid that we won't be able to attend your fête as
1. we took absolutely no money (not a bean) at the one we did with the crooners singing merrily along

2. we're probably attending another fête somewhere else, it being no doubt sunny that time of year

Sorry to be so negative on this occasion but needs must when one is running a business.  It's a dog eats dog environment out there.  Last time at Staplehurst Manor all we saw were people sloshing back the Prosecco which rots the teeth and contributes greatly to alcoholism and type 2 diabetes.  Unfortunately my pictures didn't get a look-in ~ something to feed the soul was certainly not on the agenda.

Anyway, I hope you have a good day and raise lots of dosh for the church steeple etc.

All the best

Dear Grenville

We are writing to see if you would like to have a stall at our Summer Fete this year with your paintings and prints? 

For the first time we will be holding the fete in the beautiful grounds of Staplehurst Manor and are keen for local makers and suppliers to attend and celebrate Kentish flair and produce in the garden of England.

Do let us know if you would be interested and we will then send you out a registration form and further details of the event.

With thanks for your kind attention.

Best regards

Firle Garden Show

As much as we'd like to have joined you this year, Jane, we've been in effect deselected by Weald Crafts even though we'd agreed our booking at the end of last year's Firle Garden Show.

Don't think they like the cut of Hazel & my jib. 

Ah well.
