Trigger Pond will not be at Thame in 2016. James Hemsley has been advised to slow down and rest, so he has withdrawn from all fairs. We wish him all the best and will miss him at the fair.
If we do not get time to blog before Christmas, Felicity and Ron wish you all a very merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

Thank you to all the stand holders who put us on their blogs and websites.
The exhibitors list is starting to look very good, and there are some new exhibitors adding to an already excellent line up of exhibitors.
Donations to the charity table can be made on the day or by contacting us direct. Email or on 07738 009795

The total money raised was £543.40. This is split between the two charities, so Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and Thames Valley Air Ambulance get £271.70 each. For a relatively small event we think this is a brilliant amount, so thank you for all your contributions.
The Hearing Dogs for Deaf People stand also made money from their tombola and sales, which is separate from the total.
We are now thinking about whether to run the event again next year and make it an annual instead of a bi-annual event. However, our priority for the moment is Christmas and then the Thame Fair.
Sunday, 15 November 2015
Once we have some firm totals we will let you know via the blog how much was raised for both charities.

There will also be a raffle.
All this is in support of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and Thames Valley Air Ambulance, two great charities that need help to deliver their services.

So you will, after all, be able to take a break and have a cuppa without leaving the hall.

If you are coming into Haddenham for the exhibition, another place worth stopping by is the Tythe Barn. They always have wonderful Christmas bits to look at and buy there.
Penny's Furniture will be there on the day selling his wide range of white wood furniture, and Karen Puddephat selling stuff from her dolls house attic.
K T Miniatures, Combe Crafts and Dateman Books all have websites, so you can look before you come on the 14th November. K T Miniatures and Combe Crafts run workshops, and some examples of these will be on display between their stalls.
Almost every craft can be done in miniature, so come and be inspired by the work on display.

This is a rare opportunity to see the work of some of these talented crafts people who rarely exhibit their work.
It is also an opportunity to buy DIY materials to make your own miniatures.
The event is fundraising for charities Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and The Thames Valley Air Ambulance, both of which will have tables at the event. So please buy raffle tickets.
If you want a break from miniatures, visit the nearby shops, have lunch in the coffee shop just two minutes walk away,or make a day of it by visiting the nearby Haddenham Garden Centre.

As you may notice the logo for the charity page and the name of the charity has changed this year. The Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer have merged under the banner breast cancer now and have become a single registered charity. We are pleased to continue with our support for this area of research.

The weather seems to be on our side this year, and my phone has been noticeably quiet with regard to questions about flooding, snow and the elements trying to stop us opening.
We hope to see everyone on Saturday.
Saturday, 14 February 2015
Felicity will be around for some of the day, although she gets tired very quickly, and I do not want her to overdo things and set herself back.
I will try to get as much prepared as I can on Friday evening, and hope to have every thing ready for 07.30 on Saturday, so you can all get in and set up.
We are looking forward to seeing you next week at Thame.
Monday, 9 February 2015
Haddenham is on the 14th November.
Countdown for Thame has started so we hope you are all fired up and raring to go.
Monday, 2 February 2015
We intend to keep to a similar format this year, and will be supporting Hearing Dogs and the Air Ambulance. Once Thame is over, we will begin to look at how we might develop the exhibition and bring in more visitors.
Any ideas on how to turn this small venue into a bigger event will be welcome.

I seem to have been able to advertise the fair more widely this year. Probably because I had to cancel skiing to be here for Felicity after her hysterectomy. She is doing well and should be able to be around for the fair on the 21st February. There also seems to be more sites with an events page looking for events to advertise, which makes it easier.
Hazel Dowd has had to pull out this year, as she is awaiting a knee operation. However, this has allowed us to bring in some artisans who were on our waiting list. We think we have a good and varied range of stall holders this year, with an excellent mix of regulars and new faces.
Well I keep checking to see what I have not done or missed, so if you notice any thing that needs doing, please let me know. Some potential visitors told me there were no entry prices on the web site, so I was able to correct that.
Adults £3.50, Children £1.50, under fives free.

It is difficult to read, but some good cheer would not go amiss. Politicians do not seem to do good cheer, so it is up to the rest of us to keep smiling and make the best of whatever the outcome may be.
From our perspective we are concentrating on making sure the fair is as successful as we can make it. Nearly all the arrangements are in place, tickets are on their way, and we are about to do some more local advertising. Something always get missed or rearranged, but it will be right on the day.
Lets hope the fair weekend is a good one.
