Dates: Friday 17th to Sunday 19th July 2015
Event: Hornsea Carnival
Location: Hall Garth Park, Hornsea
Amount raised: £958.69

Another excellent year at Hornsea Carnival! The weather stayed OK apart from the wind but we had everything well and truly tied down. We also had a nightmare getting everything to the event as the van broke down the night before, but with several car trips we finally managed to get set up just in time for people coming to the stall at 4pm. We didn't stop until just after the fireworks finished, about 10.15pm, as people were still buying by torchlight and by the lovely fairy lights that John had put up around the gazebos!! The tombola was also very popular and was nearly all gone by Sunday lunchtime. We managed to sell 2 cake stands, several of the hand-crafted items and other donated items. We also sold loombands and merchandise, including clothing.

Maria and John were happy as we had Hull Pie stall right next to us and as we were so busy it was easier to just go to there for pie, mash and peas (yum yum).

A big thank you to Christine and John for their amazing help all weekend and to Jimmy and Honey for coming up and helping out too.
