Default Village fete.

Yesterday was the village fete, a wonderful turnout by all, I wish to thank, Namely harry, for his aeroplane idea and whoever it was that suggested yo-yo's, I took 20 of each in kit form pluis 35 wooden blocks for the kids to nail their initials, I completely sold out, that was 75 participants, really wonderful, thanks again.

Great news Derek. I'm glad the kids enjoyed the projects.

Sounds like it was a great time for all concerned,

There's no substitute for the satisfaction one gets when a project like that turns out so well. A job really well done Derek. By the way, Mike appears to be too shy to admit that the yo yo idea was his.

Congratulations Derek. The best part is, you have introduced 75 kids, to woodworking.

Ah! Mike was it? Thank you Mike for the idea, but, Harry, the planes were the most popular and disappeared quite early on.
