On a very chilly day many people turned up to the West Ealing Neighbours Craft Fair at St James Church. This was the first time that WEN has organised this event and under the experienced guidance of Martyn Clarke from St James everything went very smoothly. Thanks to all those volunteers from the Church, WEN and WEN Abundance for helping with the unseen but nevertheless essential kitchen duties! And especially to those on welcome at the entrance to the Church, feeling the full force of the cold weather.
Our Abundance stall had a steady stream of customers who very much enjoyed our signature products such as WEN chilli chutney as well as new products – our WEN Xmas jelly marmalade went down a storm! We spoke to many people about the project, caught up with some of the volunteers and also got a few new fruit locations too!
That’s pretty much it for WEN Abundance for 2010. We will be busy over the next couple of months using up all the produce we still have in freezers – mainly grapes and some plums. Once this is finished we’ll have a well deserved break until elderflowers are in season so we can start making cordial ready for Hanwell carnival next June 2011!
