The Lady Of The House and her friend Alyson are holding a spring fair next month in our village to raise money for the Retired Greyhound Trust.
The nice people at that charity have sent us lots of posters and promotional materials, which I thought I had better cast an eye over.
Yes..... They look fine. Can't see any printing errors. And they are right. We greyhounds do make great pets.
The Spring Fair is on from 2pm to 4pm on Saturday April 2 and it's a great chance to pick up last-minute gifts for Mother's Day (which for us in the UK is Sunday April 3). It is at the Priory Centre (which is Stretton's village hall).
Stalls will include Alyson and the LOTH selling eco-friendly cleaning products and toiletries - which are kind to the environment and your pocket; Dawn's Jewellery; The Honey B's (homemade jams, pickles and chutneys); a lovely yummy cake stall; Craftybugs gifts for all occasions and a lady who makes dolls clothes and peg bags. There's also a bric-a-brac stall where all proceeds will go to the Retired Greyhound Trust and a fund-raising tombola for them. There's no charge for admission - but donations for the RGT are welcome.
I might take a stroll down with the Man Of The House to do a bit of meeting and greeting and see if I can show the folks that even if they can't adopt their own greyhound just now they might be able to make a small donation to help re-home other hounds.
