Lutterworth Rotary held its Plant, Craft and Food Fair at Misterton Hall on Sunday 14th May 2017.
There were 43 stalls on the day enjoying wonderfully warm and dry weather making for a highly successful day with 1,100 adult visitors plus many children who had free entry.
Misterton Hall gardens a delight to see and a wonderful setting for this event, our thanks to the owner Mrs Craven her hospitality. Our thanks must also go to the hard work and organisation put in by our team of Rotarians on our 11th Annual Fair, masterminded by Mark Thompson.
Visitors commented on the wide variety of stalls, displaying a wide range of different plants which were all on sale along with good advice and tips in how to make the most of them in the garden.
Crafts from jewellery to art and garden gifts, plus homemade cakes and preserves were all on sale as were a choice of refreshments including a Hog Roast and Ice Cream making it a good day out in such lovely surroundings.
We had a number of new stall holders this year who were impressed by the event and the friendly atmosphere saying that if we hold it next year may they have the opportunity of coming again.
The Concourse d’ Elegance of cars prompting many appreciative comments on the cars displayed, the winning car was an immaculate 3 litre 1962 Austin Healey owned by Ian Robertson who was presented with a trophy by Albert Costa Conservative MP for South Leicestershire - the runner up was an MGA 56 owned by Michael Ricketts.
