Brentor’s Mistletoe Fair has been held on the first Saturday of December since 2012. It is a major fundraising event for the Village Hall and raises about £1000 every year.
The fair is run by a small group of organisers who book the hall and stalls, make items for sale on the Fair’s own stall and find volunteers to help on the day. Home-made food is provided all day and entertainment provided from a choir and a visit from Santa Claus.
The decorations for the fair are left up throughout the Chrismas season for the benefit of all users of the Village Hall.
Everyone enjoyed the wide range of stalls selling decorations, soap, pottery, Brentor calendars, cards and other gifts. As always the food, which was provided all day, was wonderfully tasty and all home made. And all washed down with copious amounts of Gluhwein. The team of table clearers and washers-up was kept very busy!
The hall’s decorations included large bunches of mistletoe (courtesy of Glenys Mason) and huge amouts of fir and pine (from Margaret and Dave Calder). Thanks also go to the choir from the Mary Tavy and Brentor Community School and to Father Christmas who made a special early visit!
The event raised 0ver £1,350 and all profits from the event go to help run the Village Hall and Playing Field.
Many thanks to all who came to support the Mistletoe Fair and had, we hope, a good time in the process. Our thanks must go to the army of helpers both before and on the day.
Those who helped in the kitchen or decorated the hall; made cakes; the Gluhwein chefs; raffle prize donators & ticket sellers; Mary Tavy & Brentor School Singing Group; the young people who ably managed the Treasure Map and all who contributed to the success of the event.
We had a great day.
