Gainsborough and District Macmillan Cancer Support are hosting a large Christmas Fayre at the Old Rectory, Gate Burton on Wednesday 22nd November at 11.00 - 4.30 pm.

We are hoping for a great turnout of customers but are still looking for a few more stalls.  If anyone is interested in taking a stall, we are looking for gifts/produce/services maybe from the area?  If you can contact Helen Topp on 07906465867 or Rachael Pugsley on 07811525574. 

The fayre will be open to everyone and there will be refreshments available (Macmillan Cakes are legendary - don't miss the chance to try some).

It will be the perfect time to either sell some of your stock, or gain orders for Christmas, or complete your Christmas shopping without having to face the crowds of a packed shopping centre.  Whilst doing your shopping you will be safe in the knowledge that some of your money will be going to help those coping with cancer, as all money collected by Macmillan in Gainsborough is used in the local area.

So put the date in your diary, or give Helen or Rachael a ring and get yourself booked into what will be one of the biggest and best Christmas Fayre's held locally.



Many thanks for your support

Guess who got 1st prize in junior young handler yesterday !!
Yep Mr Mischief!! Looks like Farmer Jacks got some competition.

Farmer Jack did brilliant too in his intermediate young handler and also the adult classes. Large classes of 10+ entries per class which makes for a great competition which is what we like. Jack was successful in each class ranging from 3rd to 8th placing winning  prizes in everyone's eyes entered.

We're really pleased at our first time at Heckington Show. Looking forward to next year. Well worth a visit even if you don't like sheep !!
