The weather on the 8th December could not have been much worse. The day before wind speeds of 40mph were being forecast. This meant that only 22 of the 33 stalls booked turned up, as their insurance only covered them for maximum wind speeds of 30mph.
In the event rain was the main issue on the day. Despite this the people of Tisbury and beyond turned up and made the most of things. Just under 120 children got to see Santa in his Grotto. Many thanks to Santa (Steve McGrath), his Helper (Jacqui Windsor) & Rosie Barrett for the Decorations.
Nick Anderson went above and beyond the call of duty, moving furniture for the craft tent (Guild Anderson also transported Santa's Sleigh). Rosie Barrett stepped in at the last moment to take over the music at the event. James Deadman from the Dental Practice kindly let us use their car park again. Seeds for Success did a great job in the Crafts Tent and our wonderful Fire Service put in their usual appearance. DP Marquees kindly provided a tent.
Many organisations sponsored the event. Many thanks to The Austreng Partnership, PF Parsons Ltd, The Fishmongers & The Fonthill Estate.
A special mention must also go to the wonderful Carnival Marshalls, who always do an excellent job in all kinds of awful weather. They are truly fantastic and none of our events could take place without them.
