Great morning at the Cheam Charter Fair

Posted by Coman Communications on May 22, 2012

Taking part in an event with a long tradition was fun in itself, but it was also a good opportunity to present the work of TWEP, sell raffle tickets and our fair trade and craft items.  A huge thank you to volunteers Fatima and Julie for helping on the day.  Thank you also to the people who came to talk to us, who bought items and raffle tickets, and signed up to be on our mailing list.

Thank you also to Cllr Graham Whitham for popping over to see us on Saturday.
