HAGA – Can you help?

From Joanna Hughes
HAGA is having a stall once more at the Hughenden village hall bazaar. Proceeds are in aid of the village hall. Any profits made will help their funds and so contribute towards keeping down the costs of our hiring of the hall.

If you are able, you could help HAGA in the following ways:-
a) pricing and setting up the stall in the morning
b) selling on the stall any time between 2.00pm and 4.30-ish
c) helping clear up at the end of the afternoon
d) donating items to sell such as
– Chutneys and pickles, jams and jellies
– Natural Christmas table decorations
– Bird boxes/feeders?
– Decorative pots
– Tools, gloves etc. in fact, anything garden-related
– Succulents
– Bulbs in pots
– Fruit and veg
