Becca’s New Shop In Bridport

Opened earlier this month in South Street, Bridport – Becca’s Fabric Larder.

Becca left Redlands Yard last August and has been working from her van ‘Florry‘ at markets and village halls.  Now located at StudioOne, Becca stated: “The space neatly divides up to teaching & shop space. Great access, no steps or tricky slopes! If you haven’t said Hi yet, pop by. The shop is stocked up with goodies & all the essential cutting equipment, markers, pins, needles, rulers, wadding & ribbons. New fabrics arriving regularly and classes every week.
The class room has sewing machines if you need them, to save you lugging them from the car park. Any problems booking or you’d prefer to do it over the phone, please don’t hesitate to call.”

Call Becca on 07486 062 343 or book online for one of the many courses she offers.  All courses will take place at 34, South Street.

Please Visit Wooly Wonders At Redlands Yard

Kirsty has had her Wooly Wonders unit at Redlands Yard since last June but is already threatened with closure due to lack of customers.
Redlands Yard showed their support by posting this message:

Our wonderful yarn shop here at Redlands Yard is proving popular on social media and with knitting stalwarts, but the current level of custom is not high enough to sustain Wooly Wonders as a business. We love having Kirsty here, with her fantastic knowledge and extensively stocked shop full of yarns and accessories, and we are keen to support niche businesses and interests such as this. However, if custom does not pick up, the shop will have to close. If you would like to see it stay open, please come along and support this excellent enterprise. Thank you.

Kirsty also posted on social media:

If you can support us, please do. We love our new home and would be sad to have to leave. A huge thank you to Redlands Yard for all your help and support.
Team Wooly
You can contact Kirsty by email: woolywondersyeovil@gmail.com

Rainbows Over Broadwindsor

Social media was made brighter yesterday with many images of the beautiful double rainbows that covered our village.  Visitor Scott Dutton and his wife parked their car in the village and enjoyed a lovely walk around the area  and submitted these beautiful images of the rainbows.

An Incredible Evening

Approximately 500 people flocked to Broadwindsor’s Cricket Club Pavilion last night to watch Broadwindsor Fun Group’s organised Firework display led by village resident & member of Broadwindsor Fun GroupAndrew Hookings.

Stewards were in place and worked ‘flat out’ for 3 hours, continually guiding people and their families safely in and out of the grounds.

The Fun Group’s Food stall had some people queuing for 50 minutes before completely selling out of burgers and hot dogs, almost exclusively cooked by Vice-chairman, Martin Burt with his trusty meat thermomenter! Delicious hot soups and mulled wine also sold very well.
The Cricket Club’s bar sold out too, with a quick trip to the Co-op required to stock up!

All those involved under estimated the crowd who attended and this has been attributed to local advertising; no other local organised displays taking place; the forecast of dry weather and admission was free 🙂

Special thanks must go to Margery Hookings who raised an astonishing  £743.07 in her special family collection bucket!

Incredible. I can’t recall ever seeing that many people in the village” was one local comment made.  David Leader, who worked with the BFG Core group on the food stall stated “I don’t think I have ever been involved in catering for so many people in such a short period of time.” Cars parking on the verges at Cross Keys and on the grass area at the front of Redlands Lane was not appreciated but thankfully were there for just one hour.

Broadwindsor House have posted lovely videos on their Facebook page – Click HERE & HERE.

A huge thank you to all involved and all who came along to support the event!

Following the success of this event, Broadwindsor Fun Group and Broadwindsor Cricket Club will have a debrief meeting with a view to holding the event next year.

Don’t forget…

This Tuesday evening at 7.30pm – Broadwindsor Fun Group are holding their Open Planning meeting to discuss 2022’s Jubilee’s celebrations and more fundraising dates.
All are welcome.  For more information and the Agenda – Click HERE.
