Pamphill Dairy & Farm Shop

I just SO enjoyed organising the November fair in spite of all the hard work!
Being the inaugural event there were a few fraught moments (how many cakes to bake. . .how many flyers to print. . .how many people will come. . .will it snow???)

Preparations for the May fair are in full swing- Spring is such a pretty time and while the Village Hall certainly shone decked with bunting in the cold wintery sunshine, I can't wait to see how it looks with stallholders selling under the front canopy, leaves on the surrounding trees, and the countryside beyond bursting with beauty.

More people visited the Vintage Fair than any other event held at the hall causing a hiccup with parking, which is one problem I didn't forsee!
To ease the situation we're allowed to use the overflow car park in the adjoining Farm Shop, with easy access to the Hall.



Pamphill Dairy, Pamphill Parlour, The Little Blue Barn, Anousta Skin Products and Pamphill Butchers all sell within the farm shop complex and are well worth visiting while you're at the fair!
