I enjoy seeing the huge marquee going up on the field ready for the Grindleford show and look forward to seeing the wonderful local produce, especially the flowers and cakes!
But first there is work to be done organising the playgroup wine or water stall.
Preparations start back in June as we reach out to local businesses for donations of wine for the stall. This year we were incredibly successful and we would like to thank all of the local businesses who supported us.
Derwentwater Arms, Calver Miners Arms, Eyam
Merchants Yard, Tideswell Majestic, Sheffield
Morrisons, Meadowhead Valley Engineering Co.
Special thanks must go to Tesco Abbeydale Road Community Champion who donated 8 bottles of wine for the stall.
With the wine sorted we had then to collect a huge number of entries, fill these with water and wrap the lot.
Fine weather saw a good number of visitors to the show and the stall proved very popular with a brisk trade in the mystery bottles.
Thank you to everyone who supported us on the day, we raised £168 and this will go towards new equipment for the playgroup.
