Fund raising

Last weekend was slightly mad to say the least..  Friday our good friends Mel and Stuart had their wedding party here, a day to remember and stunning weather!

Very kindly they arranged for the marquee to stay up for the whole of the weekend so make the most of it we did…..

The Saturday (despite the rain) we had a Dorchester Fishing Club / Chalk Stream club BBQ a great social took place lots of rather nice food, wine and of course fishing chat.

Andrea and I decided that we would use the weekend to raise a few funds for the village of West Stafford http://www.weststafford.com/ we held an auction of fishing on the river Frome, some great lots were donated, a huge thank you to – Wrackleford Estate, Dorchester Fishing Club, Harry Warr at East Burton, Paul Bullimore, Ben Assarati and the Dorchester and District Angling Society, and of course we put in a days fishing here…

The Sunday we had a village tea party that was seriously well attended, further fund raising with donations of wine, we held a wheelbarrow of wine raffle and auction….

We are really proud to say that with the kindness and generosity of family, friends, fellow fisher folk and villagers we have so far raised £700.00 for the village….
