Fun in the Park, 3rd June 2017

Last Saturday was the annual 'Fun in the Park' event in Abingdon's Abbey Grounds.  For the past couple of years, we have been relegated to the car park for this community event, but we were pleased to be able to pitch our stall in the park itself this time!  The weather was suitable glorious to boot.

A number of Green Gymmers - Eleanor (and husband, Arthur), Sally, Lesley, Janet, Kevin, Carolyn, Jessica, Colin, Dieuwke, Michelle and Andrew helped out throughout the day, with details including the erection and dismantling of the gazebo, tables and associated paraphernalia in addition to speaking to prospective new members, and selling our wares.

Eleanor had printed and laminated some new photographs for the display boards, and a good amount of people expressed an interest in our activities throughout the day.

The "Find the Lucky Square" game made it's annual appearance and made £8.00.  Along with sales of the legendary Green Gym Marmalade, Eleanor's Lemon Curd, Mixed Fruit Chutney and Rhubarb and Ginger Jam, treasurer Sally was pleased to inform us that a respectable total profit (after costs) of £34.20 was achieved!

A photo of some of our volunteers at the stall even made it onto the popular Abingdon Blog.  A good effort all round!
