Produce Sale – Harvest time in Hamworthy

The Produce sale held in the park on Saturday 15 September proved to be a very successful event for FOHP.   The weather was kind and many people turned up to purchase all the wonderful produce that had been donated by the local community.

It was a hard job to find room on the tables for all the cakes, pies, pasties and crumbles, while other tables were well laden with fruit, veg, jams and chutneys. Our publicity tables benefited as the 2019 Park Calendar was available hot off the press and was much admired –  get one while you can!  Christmas cards sold well (you can never start too early!) and the coasters and fridge magnets with brand new photos were snapped up.

For the younger ones, the children’s tombola was popular, less so the adult tombola – they were more interested in the consumables!

A total of £792.25 was raised on the day (almost double last year’s amount) which will be put to good use on the various projects we have planned to improve even further a park that must rank amongst the best in the country.

 

The Trustees would like to thank all those who most generously donated such wonderful produce, all the helpers who willingly assisted us on the day and not least the large numbers in our community who supported this event.
