Holywell Green for the second year running welcomed TV's Tim Hogarth to Holywell Green & Stainland United reformed church for an extremely well attended Antiques Valuation Day.
All kinds of valuable and not so valuable items were looked at by Tim, and some people even walked away with cash for their collectibles.
The church hall was busy all afternoon, with attendees patiently waiting for Tim to give them the low down on their possessions, while enjoying a cuppa and a slice of cake.
A further £500 was raised towards the Holywell Community Pub Campaign, but there is much further to go. Thank you to all of you who supported the Antiques Valuation Day, it is very much appreciated.
If you would like to find out more about the campaign, why not join us at the Duke of York in Stainland for one of our bi-weekly open meetings. Check the events calendar for details of the next one.
Holywell Green Garden Produce Show - Results
Well, another successful Holywell Community Pub community event took place at the weekend with plenty of green fingered locals turning up to present the fruits of their labour (pardon the pun) at the second Holywell Green Garden produce Show. The show was very well attended with over 60 competition entries, with the group raising over £300 towards the Holywell funds.
A vast array of produce was on show, with Alison Cowton of Holywell Green winning the coveted Garden Produce Show shield. 2nd Prize was won by Philip Noble with R Scott picking up 3rd prize.
A complete list of section results can be found below.
