Father Christmas in Old Buckenham

Fundraising at the Windmill and the Village Hall
The Old Buckenham Village Recycling and Environment Group (VERG) had organised a table top sale in the village hall today. There were nearly twenty 'tables' offering homemade crafts as well as lots of household items for resale - anything from a large lawnmower to some small painting canvases. Money from the raffle is to be given towards the Senior Citizens party that will be held early next year.

Meanwhile at Old Buckenham Mill Father Christmas had arrived in an old Post Office van and taken up residence on the first floor. Over fifty children had booked in to go and see him, to have a chat and receive a present. On the ground floor there were plenty of activities to keep both young and old busy -  playing games, having their face painted or doing some colouring while perhaps sampling some hot punch and handmade mince pies. Everyone was enjoying themselves (including the wonderfully attired elves who were in attendance) and raising money to help with the Mill's maintenance at the same time.
