Vil­lagers go on sa­fari for bar­gains

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”
