As seen in the poster below, there was a fund-raising feast organised by Fleet Pond Society (FPS) held in the WE restaurant in Fleet last Monday.
Jim Storey, Committee Member of FPS, writes:
“And what a feast we had! Lots of lovely food served by very friendly staff. Jamie Balfour, the current High Sheriff of Hampshire joined us and shared some of his wide experiences with us. We had 130 members, friends, local business people, councillors and Lions join us for the dinner. And weren’t they generous too! Our guests bought lots of raffle tickets and weren’t disappointed with their winnings.
Sue Tilley, who organised the evening, had also been donated some very smart prizes by local businesses and restaurants. When we finished counting the money, we’d raised £1,750 from the evening. We’ll find some very worthwhile things to invest this in for the Pond.”
Many thanks to everyone who attended the meal for supporting FPS in it’s aim of helping maintain and improve Fleet Pond.
