Bampton School is raising funds by having a prize draw.
The concept is that people and/or companies donate some prizes.
To ‘win’ a prize you buy a ticket at 50p a go for the particular prize you fancy winning.
All the tickets for one prize go into the hat and one is drawn out.
There are 30 or more prizes at the moment including days out fishing and a meal for 2 at the local pub.
The prize that took my eye (not to win though) is the pile of dung.
This is supplied by Alison and this prize reveals the reason she has been buying all the Pontefract Cakes we can provide.
Someone came into the shop today and asked “Any jobs in the window?”
It wasn’t me that replied “Sorry, we do not need a mannequin at the moment, thank you”.
Returning to the Olympic theme from yesterday when I told you about Ian Buchanan carrying the torch.
Well, would you believe it, a gentleman by the name of Ian Buchanan was the first president of the International Society of Olympic Historians (ISOH). You can read his report of the 1900 yachting http://www.sports-reference.com/olympics/summer/1900/SAI/
My other half is still incapacitated (can’t work) with a broken metatarsal from the fall last week.
She would like to say thank you for all the messages from the customers and especially the one who brought in a magazine for her to read.
