Just a quick update, as we have just had a meeting re County lane fair and all indoor stalls are now full and only outside stalls remain.

So if you are a stall holder with goods made locally regionally or within NZ then still outside stalls available. There is also room for a few more food trucks, we have plenty of Ice cream slushies, coffee, satays and Tai food trucks as well as the usual hot chips and Gumbo and spicey beans and saussuage sizzle. Joys cafe will be open for tea scones cake etc , but maybe some other ethnic varieties would be nice. Also a tiny bit of room in the gourmet food produce section. We are hoping to expand this area of stallholders to include some local produce. Over 70 stalls already booked and paid for, We also have some amusements for the children. So a real family event. and great fundraiser for the hospice. For a better feel for the fair do visit the county lane fair facebook page. You will be impressed.
