There’s no doubt about it, Autumn has well and truly arrived, although I’m a little confused. Mum says her clock has gone back (but to where?) then adds “Winter drawers on” with a sort of smirk. She also says look out for hedgehogs nesting in the bonfire before you set light to it and keep all your pets safe indoors as the firework season approaches. Now that I DO understand.
Our indefatigable fundraisers will be at the Bridge Farm Barns Festive Fair on Saturday 14th November in Monks Eleigh, IP7 7AY. Sheila and Elaine have oodles of “classy stuff” and Jeanette will be running her Terrific Tombola. If you have any last minute items that might suit either stall, please leave them, clearly marked “TOMBOLA” or ‘CLASSY’, at SESAW or phone 07881 785535 to arrange collection. We can also accept vintage and antique items for next year’s sales. By the way, Sharon is now making a Christmas range of masks, please phone Jayne on 07720 079370 to order.
Despite restrictions, Joan has secured a place for SESAW at the Christmas Tree Festival in St. Peter’s Church in Sudbury next month. She is busy assembling mug shots of the volunteers to decorate the boughs, I wonder who will be the fairy at the top. This annual celebration is a wonderful start to the festive season and a beautiful sight to behold. Perhaps Mum will let one of the SESAW animals visit the Festival, maybe even me, (Kenny the Boss) Chihuahua.
