To everyone who came to the fete and drank a cuppa, bought a raffle ticket, played
a game, slurped an ice cream, entered a competition, asked a question, cuddled a
lamb, quaffed a pint, purchased something special, won a prize, created
something, met a guide dog, learnt a circus skill, watched an arena display,
experienced real magic, or simply got windblown…..THANK YOU!
