Despite the occasional downpour Open Day on August 12th was a great success.
We estimate that around 500 people came onto the site during the afternoon.
The two new marquees worked wonderfully - many thanks to Bolton CVS and the Big Bolton Small Grants Programme for the grant that enabled us to buy them.
We raised around £580 for Society funds - as usual the Tombolas were major contributors (£227) and this year the cafe raised more than £250 - plus the Hospice raised over £125 in collections
Many thanks to everyone who helped (and to Bolton Council, St Peters Church and Peter Williams for the loan of chairs and tables) and to all the people who had stalls or ran games etc. Special thanks to the dancers and the Soya Band, much enjoyed by everyone. Special thanks too, to the teams who erected and then dismantled the marquees.
We're hoping to publish a set of photos and the Show results in the next couple of weeks, but just now we all need a chance to recharge our batteries. Next stop the play!
