Christmas Bazaar at Orsett Hall
The Essex Lady Taverners’ festive season got off to a good start with our Christmas Bazaar in the beautiful Pavilion Room of Orsett Hall on 7 November. With bargains to be had, designer-ware and lots more, it was again a hugely popular and successful event attracting many of our members and friends. Furthermore, this year, a number of new stallholders participated such as The Cheese and Pie Man selling various scrumptious cheeses and delicious pies to take home. With shopping and spending over, we were then served a light lunch giving us the opportunity to chat to our friends and share gossip (of course). We were also very pleased to welcome from Head Office, Jo Hicks, who had taken the trouble to come and mingle with us.
Our thanks again go to Heather and Richard who worked tirelessly to ensure the success of the Tombola Stall - £510 raised; also to Val Ryan for running the Christmas Hamper raffle; the staff of Orsett Hall and everyone else who attended and gave support. The raffle raised a splendid sum of £687.
