OCTOBER – Secret Garden Party success & NEW Winter 2021 Menu

Secret Garden Party success & NEW Winter 2021 Menu

Christmas Shopping Event in the Secret Garden
Over £900.00 made for two local charities

On 16th October 14 local businesses got together in a dream setting (thank you Morag Hockin for the use of your beautiful garden) to help raise over £900.00 for Rotherfield St Martins & WRAS.

The atmosphere was magical and it was just so humbling to see so many local people supporting this event – special thanks go to Terrie Hepburn Holmes who’s super social networking skills and hard work really paid off!

Rotherfield St Martins is a charity which aims to combat loneliness and isolation in the elderly in Rotherfield and surrounding area.  WRAS is the East Sussex Wildlife Rescue Ambulance Service who rescue, rehabilitate and care so much about all wildlife at their casualty care centre with the help of volunteers.

Second Helpings was honoured to take part in this event; We took along an assortment of mini savoury quiches, cheese straws, salad pots, brownies and mini lemon meringue bites – we also provided lunch for some of the stall holders and actually sold out completely by 12:30 – sorry to all those who visited in the afternoon! Clearly we need to make more next time 😊

To scroll through the images and all the positive remarks and comments, take a look at The Secret Garden event page on FaceBook

If you missed out on this event, many of the stall holders will be exhibiting at Charters Village Christmas Fair on Friday 26th November and at The Old Dunning’s Mill Christmas event on Saturday 27th November
