Last weekend saw our own Christmas fair pass very successfully but with a couple of weather related incidents! We are always extremely careful in the preparation, setting up and delivery of our fair to make sure it is a good weekend for all concerned. When the weather takes a turn for the worse there is absolutely nothing you can do about it! Falling temperatures were not a problem due to the heating we have in our marquee. Even gale force winds through Friday night left us hanging on to the front edge of the marquee but weren’t too bad as we erected the marquee inside one of our barns. But when you have a power cut on the morning of your big event as a tree branch hits your transformer and cuts everything out, things get a little more tricky! Thankfully due to the resourcefulness of ourselves and friends, generators were quickly drafted in to power everything essential. The good spirit of all the stallholders ensured everything was set up and ready for visitors by 10am. Both days proved to be very successful and people turned out in big numbers to see the wonderful array of products that were on show.
This coming weekends big event is the brilliant Lincolnshire Food and Gift Fair 1015, at the Lincolnshire Showground. This is a great event and one of the biggest of it’s kind. The fair is held in the Exhibition Hall and the Epic Centre on the showground with a large marquee linking the two buildings together. All the major Lincolnshire food, drink and craft producers will be there, with many more from further afield. This is definitely one fair that you do not want to miss. It will be possible to do all your Christmas shopping under one roof!
Our own Fabulously Fruity wine will be in attendance again. Our wonderful team will be located at stand 127 in the Exhibition Hall. This is the first row of stalls on the left of the main entrance. Look out for our signs and our very smart oak bar, from which we can serve you samples of all our delicious range of wine.
Our full range of apple, blackcurrant, bramble, gooseberry, raspberry and strawberry wine will be on sale. Plus limited editions such as the new releases of the 2015 Elderflower and Rhubarb wines. You can sample any wine before you buy. All our Christmas gift packs will be on sale plus we have a special offer of a case of any 6 standard bottles for the reduced price of £45!
We hope to see you there.
