A charity banquet in the Mediaeval Hall of the Treasurer's House in Martock
on Saturday night proved to be a wonderful evening of
excellent food and wines and perfect company in the most gorgeous setting.
The Treasurer's House is the oldest inhabited house in Somerset,
with the exception of the Bishop's Palace in Wells.
It is mentioned in texts from 1221.
The evening ended with an Auction of Promises ...
the VJ's ended up spending far too much money,
but it was all for a very good cause ...
the Mental Health Foundation.
Did you know, directly or indirectly,
1 in 4 people will be affected by mental health issues each year?
Maristella ... if you read this,
Mr VJ bid on and won a little treat for us all when you come to visit!
The next day, they had afternoon tea,
at her bestie's house,
to celebrate the birthday of their 'sweet sixteen'.
How cute are these cookies ...
This week VJ has stock to get ready for ...
Miss Edie will be for sale at the fair ...
Hopefully, she will go to a good home ...
