CARSHALTON ENVIRONMENTAL FAIR 2012 - Carshalton Park 27th August 2012

Smiles all round! Mike just loses the 'filling the shirt' competition to Tony! Mike, Pat and Shirley are just visible The Wandle book is a deserved
best-seller this year

August Bank Holliday Monday saw the trusty Friends of Honeywood Museum gazebo once again erected in Carshalton Park for the annual Environmental Fair.

The weather had looked potentially 'dodgy' since early morning, and this may have attributed to the feeling that the event may have been a little quieter than last year. But, with one or two very minor exceptions, the rain held off until much later in the evening, allowing most of those who attended to escape unscathed!

Paul and Shirley Williams, Mike and Pat Bale, Sue Horne, Jane Howard and Tony Price all provided a friendly interface with the public behind tables well-stocked with books, cards and the growing range of increasingly popular old Ordnance Survey maps we have begun to stock this year (a range we will be expanding in the days to come).

Most of those who visited were interested in the history of the local area, and many of them had been to Honeywood Museum since it had been refurbished and were generally full of praise for the outcome. Those that hadn't were warmly encouraged to do so!

As in previous years, the Fair was obviously enjoyed by all and we can look back with a great deal of satisfaction at engaging with so many interested visitors and the fruits of a very successful trading day contributing to our funds.
