Villagers go on safari for bargains
Residents had a great good time rummaging for bargains at a safari market in their village.
The annual event around Hollingbourne saw more than 45 stalls selling a range of goods.
From jams and chutneys to hand tools, and bric-a-brac to bird tables, there was something for everyone.
Organised by the Hollingbourne WI, visitors started at the Cardwell Pavilion, where they picked up a map to make their way around the market.
The Sugarloaves pub also got involved, with three stalls in its garden, and the WI hosted a new stall this year – knit and natter – with a variety of hats, gloves, scarves and children’s clothes on offer.
Janice Butler, president of the WI, said: “The event was very successful. Everybody seemed to enjoy the day very much.
“Whether people were downsizing or moving, or just decluttering, the village really got behind it.
“The WI would like to thank the members of the Meadows Trust who helped us set up. We wouldn’t have been able to do it without their help.”
