Once again the Mill Road Winter Fair managed to arrange a clear and crisp winter’s day and a huge turnout from Cambridge and beyond. While our stall was positioned at the far end of the action, by Thoday Street, we still had quite a number of people visit us – at times more than our three or more volunteers could talk to.
This year we had a little more to offer than previous years. The Fair was the first outing for our new greeting cards and we sold well over 100 of them as well as many Camcycle badges. Our stall was also nice and bright with our new banner, tablecloth and large posters to promote our successful and ongoing campaigns.
The reaction from passers-by was overwhelmingly positive with many questions about the Chisholm Trail. It was clear that the community is now impatient for the Trail to be constructed.
Thank you to all the volunteers who helped with our stall at the Winter Fair. We couldn’t do it without you!
