Overbury Street Market 2018 Report
Despite the continuing hot weather the crowds returned to support our 40th anniversary event and rewarded the hard work from stall holders and others with a record return of £5001.
As usual Bacon Butties welcomed the early arrivals to Church Row flying the traditional colourful ‘tribal banners’. Going for a Song capitalised on the continuing drought by offering a number of large water butts which sold particularly well! Locally produced Honey and Lamb proved tempting together with Anne’s Pantry’s home made cakes and pastries all disappearing fast. The Bottle stall, run this year by two new young Australians, almost doubling their takings. Books and Toys were as popular as ever while the Raffle, with very tempting prizes, did well.
To relax, there were refreshments in Berkeley Garden with Ice Cream to cool off, while Max Roach played his relaxing piano melodies. Whitcombe Gardens provided a beautiful area for children’s games with Anthony Hallett’s plants selling well as usual. David Packwood joined us again to demonstrate and sell his unique corn dollies, and the many other stall holders were happy with their morning. As always, the assistance from many to prepare and help run this event is very much appreciated.
