Overbury 38th Street Market report

Street Market Report 2016

Despite early morning showers a large crowd of our regulars and new visitors arrived for the Street Market, chasing away the last remnants of rain.  Opening at 10am, announced by five strikes on the ‘five minute’ church bell, tolled by young Alex Randles.

 A huge thanks to all the stall holders, including:

·         Bacon & Veggy Butties

·         Katie Hough Art

·         Raffle

·         Overbury Lamb

·         Anne’s Pantry

·         Going for a Song

·         Corn Dollies

·         The Book Stall

Refreshments were on offer in Berkeley House garden, and this year visitors were serenaded by Mike Weaver with his guitar and melodic songs. Across the road, in Whitcombe Garden, the Overbury School and Grasshoppers Nursery entertained the youngsters.

At noon the tidy up began, ensuring that by 1.30pm the street was cleared, banners packed away for another year and all furniture returned to the Village Hall.  Another magnificent effort, on the part of so many, has raised in excess of £3500 towards the village charities.  Thank you to everyone.
