Arts Festival 17th, 18th May 2014
A big thank you to all who took part in the recent Arts Festival as exhibitors, helpers or visitors.
It was a wonderful week-end, demonstrating village talent, the ability to work together with a cohesive team and the warmth and friendliness of Mobstead. It was a privilege to welcome The Honourable Lady Jane Heber-Percy, wife of the Lord Lieutenant of Shropshire, who opened the Festival and spent time talking to exhibitors.
We had 650 + visitors though the door during the week-end many of whom commented on the wonderful atmosphere, the beautiful hall and the warmth of the welcome they received. The event has resulted in a goodly sum for the Millennium Community Centre.
Raffle prizes were won by Pat Holmes -first prize, Jackie Edwards - second prize, Fiona Willmott- third prize, Roger Surridge - fourth prize.
The catalogue prize number draw was won by Ian Macbeth.
Village support was greatly appreciated particularly in memory of Jacqui Talbot.
