We'll be holding an auction on Saturday, October 6th in aid of local charity Julia’s House. The charity provides practical and emotional support for families caring for a child with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition, providing support in their own homes, in the community or at their hospices. Wonderful work so we want to raise as much as we can.
Local businesses like Huck, Palmers Brewery, Fiscal Futures, Moores Biscuits, Footeprints, Beaminster Pharmacy, Mapperton Gardens, The Melplash Show and Abbotsbury Children’s Farm plus many of Groves’ suppliers like Zest 4 Leisure, Bon Bon's, Jardinopia, Smart Garden Products, A Short Walk, Tractor Ted, Palm Tree Products, Best Pets, Heart and Home have all kindly supplied items to be auctioned so we thank them. We've items for all the family including a fantastic romantic 2-night break in a luxury Shepherd's Hut, some lovely cider for Dad, lots of dog items, a barbecue and children's toys. A fantastic volleyball set, tickets for Forde Abbey, Abbotsbury Children's Farm, a tour of Palmers brewery and next year's Melplash Show.
