Don't forget the Swannanoa fair is on this weekend 11th... at the Swannanoa domain off Tram road on your way to Oxford...
Great entertainment
hundreds of craft stalls
Trade stalls
fine foods
and much more...

I would love to meet those of you from the area, ask one of the trade stallers for Jan Scown, they should be able to point me out....

No rain dances please until after the 11th, here in North Canterbury..;)

Was a great day at the Swannanoa fair, I met up with a couple of life stylers which was great. We had a record turn out of approx 12,000 people...
We brought in $54,000 and $41,000 of that is profit for the school...
It was very hot and I ended up burnt, the MC made fun of me in front of the crowds,(well someone has to do it) was all in fun... So for any of you who did manage to get there, thank you for your support....
The whole fair is organised and run by parents and we have been really lucky to have such supportive parents and others in our community....

Now to get ready for next year...
