Husthwaite Summer Market


Saturday June 23rd saw the 2nd market held in the village. The Summer market was a special event to raise funds for our new village hall and we could not have been more pleased.

Weather not withstanding, we had a wonderful mix of stallholders from Hovingham Market, Leeds artist Bridget March, Yorkshire Dales Ice Cream, plus our own village businesses, Willow Crafts, The Curtain Room, Beacon Alpacas and Orchards of Husthwaite, all contributing to the atmosphere. A fantastic selection of home made breads from Jan Coulthard and Cathy Barker raised an amazing £120 which helped us raise the grand total of £757 for the new village hall.

Special thanks has to go to our cake makers, who produced a wonderful array of cakes, and the refreshment team who worked hard making and selling bacon butties, cakes and drinks.
All the visiting stallholders were very complimentary about the event and have asked to be invited to any future markets, so we hope to make this a regular calendar must.

Thank you to everyone who helped organise such a successful event and ‘fingers crossed', in a new village hall it will be even better for stallholders and shoppers alike.
