This will only be of interest to local friends and readers of our blog but I can’t resist sharing a tip/putting in a plug for this event.
The 2010 annual DRCS Shopping Fair takes place this week at the Maynard in Grindleford (S32 2HE for those reliant on a Satnav.)
Om Wednesday between 4 – 8 pm will be the ‘preview’ with sparkling wine, canapes and the chance to have the pick of all the exciting things for sale – plus the chance of possibly winning a diamond…! Tickets £10 per person.
The fair continues all day Thursday from 10 to 4: no champagne or canapes but snacks and drinks available from the hotel itself. Tickets for the day £5 (Or £2.50 if purchased in advance – let me know via the blog or email and I can arrange it)..
