August Newsletter from BECCMARK

Greeting to all from the BECCMARK team. Hope this newsletter finds you all well and enjoying, what has been so far, a glorious summer.

The summer months are just as busy as the Christmas months for us as we take our stalls to various summer fates to promote BECCMARK and what we do.

One of our stalls is with us every month. The tombola stall has donations from the stall holders at the fair every month, and is looked after by The Academy in Bourne End.The money raised goes to the chosen charity of the month. These charities are generally local ones or national ones but aimed at local branches. Some of the charities who have received monies raised are Orla’s Own Steps, Bourne End Day Centre, MS Society, Headway South Bucks And Riding for the Disabled Association. Since BECCMARK started it has raised well £2500 to £3000. This is, I think, an amazing amount since we are a small fair – although we are growing at a quick pace. If you have a charity that is special to you and you would like to see some money raised for it, please email Rosie O’Hagan at the address below. Or pop in and see us at the next fair.

Another of our stall holders, and I have got to say here that she is a great friend of mine, is Karen M’Nicol. Karen and I have known each other for near on thirty years know. Our children grew up together. We share a stall and she sells mostly items to do with paper. K’s Crafty Products started out as a simple hobby 3 years ago. Up-cycling items at home purely for fun and enjoyment. It has now developed into a small craft business making lots of pretty home items.

These include decoupaged picture frames, boxes, bangles and many other items which are decorated with cut out paper and glued to the item. The paper can be cut from many paper designs, including magazines, decoupage paper, napkins or wrapping paper. Karen prefers to use magazines and spends hours looking for contrasting colours and themes for certain items.

Recently she had also made fairy jars and doors to bring a little magic into customers homes.

Karen has also started doing origami flowers arrangements which have become very popular. These can be made to order in the colours of your choice, as can all the other items she makes.

Karen will be at the next fair in August, but if you wish to contact her her details are as follows:- email karen_mcnicol@hotmail.com

Well the next time I will be talking to you we will being looking forward to Autumn and all it has to offer. In the meantime I wish you all well and hope you enjoy the later part of Summer.
