Flea Market Update

Posted by brilomax on February 17, 2020

9th February Flea Market

Well despite the dreadful weather last weekend that meant some stall holders couldn’t make it to our Flea Market, we made £800.00!

It was a very strange day, I am not keen on driving these days and only drive the car to Barton and back several times a year, I also hate driving in the rain and through large puddles. To be honest I don’t know how I got to the Village Hall, as there were already large areas of water to be driven through on Leyland Road which was closed later on in the day.
We then discovered we had forgotten several items, I forgot the corned beef for the hotpot, thanks to Jenny who turned her car around and went back for it. I had left it near the cooker so I wouldn’t forget it lol. Dawn forgot the jam for the scones, thanks to Sylvia for buying some on her way to Barton. Brian left a bag with the salad items and ham for the sandwiches and had to go back for it, how long have we been doing this?

Despite all this and the fact our visitor numbers were a third of the normal number we had a good day. As a whole we generally make about a thousand pounds so we were surprised and delighted to make £800.00.
Thank you to all of you, helpers and visitors, not forgetting our stall holders who braved the elements to help us raise funds to help the cats.
We look forward to seeing those of you unable to come last weekend to our next Flea Market on Sunday 8 March, let’s hope the weather is kinder to us.

Thanks also to our many helpers on the stalls, in the foyer and in the kitchen who haven’t had a specific mention, we couldn’t do it without you. A big “thank you!” to you all.

We are always looking for volunteers to help on the day, can you spare a couple of hours? We have a very friendly group of volunteers but could always use a few more helping hands.

Could you bake some cakes for us?

Give us a call on 01772 750263 (preferably after 6pm any evening) if you would like to help in any way.

Needless to say we have now run out of good quality prizes for the Tombola and will need to collect many more prizes for our next Flea Market (Sunday 9th February 2020).

So please keep the donations coming.

If you have any items to donate, please Tel Christine on 01772 750263 or Sylvia on 01772 716837.

Thank You So Much!    🙂

They are about three months old, fully vaccinated and micro-chipped, the ginger & white male (Tango) is very friendly, there are two gingers (Copper (female) & Rudy (male)) & the dark tortie (Cinder) who is a little nervous.

If you live local to Preston,Lancashire and would like to offer a home to one (or more) of these delightful kittens please call us on 01772 750263, please leave a message if no one answers, someone will get back to you.

We expect a donation of at least £40 for our kittens & a commitment to keep them in at night and provide a litter tray.

Update (16/02/2020). All four kittens have found loving homes. 🙂

Dinah

Dinah, is a very pretty tabby girl found as a stray and was being fed by a lovely family who would have adopted her but their own cat would not accept her.

She is about two years old, she has tested negative for FIV/Felv, also she is neutered, vaccinated & micro-chipped.

If you live local to Preston, Lancashire, and would like to offer Dinah a home then please call us on 01772 750263. We insist on a minimum donation of £50 for our adult neutered cats, you will have to agree to keep her in at night and provide a litter tray.

Silver

Posted by brilomax on January 21, 2020

This delightfully little lady is looking for a forever home.

She was brought to our attention by a lady who described her as a stray and that according to her friend, “was probably pregnant”. We suspect that she was simply putting weight on because she was being regularly fed.

Silver is about eighteen months old, she has been neutered, vaccinated, chipped and has tested negative for FIV/Felv. She is friendly and will make someone a wonderful pet.

If you live local to Preston, Lancashire, and would like to offer this lady a home then please call us on 01772 750263. We insist on a minimum donation of £50 for our adult neutered cats, you will have to agree to keep her in at night and provide a litter tray.

Update! (22/01/2020) Silver now has a home with a young family in Lostock Hall.

🙂
