Overwhelming Success

I am proud to announce that the Nantwich Baby Fair 2012 was an overwhelming success. My biggest fear about organising another one was not having the footfall, I'm sure this is every event organisers nightmare but on Saturday 23rd June, we had visitors from all around South Cheshire to the event at the Nantwich Civic Hall.

The doors opened at 12pm and I recall peeking out of the door at 11.50am to see people queuing to get in. I had bought in 100 Mama Packs as goody bags and these went within the first hour. By the time our special guests, Upsy Daisy and Iggle Piggle arrived at 1.30pm the hall was full with people and pushchairs. We also had dance and baby sign demonstrations, First Aid and Beauty treatments. Redshift Radio compered on the day and kept visitors informed with regular announcements.

The icing on the cake was when I got home and counted all the money that we had collected on the day, the raffle, the door and the tombola all raised a staggering £1077.20 all in aid of the One in Eleven Appeal for Leighton Hospital.

This week has been spent contacting the winners of the raffle prizes, I am still to deliver some which I haven't got round to yet.  

I would like to thank my husband, Mark who is my absolute rock. I would never have been able to do the event without his help and support, and my 5 year old son, Luke was an absolute star on the day helping out and behaving so well.

I have been asked if I will be organising another one, well, just watch this space...............
