Spring Fair a huge success ~ Appeal for the winner of the giant Teddy

Thank you to everyone who came along to our Spring Fair on Sunday to make it such a huge success. Even the sun came to enjoy the festivities!

The “Great Court Lane Cake Off” baking competition was a big draw. Thank you to everyone who entered a cake  and congratulations to all the worthy winners. We would like to thank our special guest, Brendan Lynch for judging the competition for us and giving us some wonderful baking advice (and photo opportunities).

One lucky winner won the giant Teddy and we are appealing for them to come forward to claim their prize. Unfortunately the telephone number we have for the winner is incomplete so we are unable to notify them. The Teddy was won by MARTINA, so if that was you, please email us on hello@courtlaneallotments.com and send us your complete phone number and the name you chose to claim your prize.

Thank you once again for making our event such a success. Hope to see you at our next event ~ Family Fun Quiz on Saturday 15th June at 7.30pm (tickets available from Court Lane Shop from this weekend).
