Our attempt at some kind of normality with a Table-Top Sale, the so-called “Masked Stall” event, took place on the top green in Ethelburt Avenue on August 15th. It was planned as a community event and also to raise money for the nominated charity, The Southampton Families Trust. The weather was not kind, but on the other hand not too cruel to the 16 or so stallholders who braved the drizzle. There were not too many residents attending but given the weather and the strangeness of the times, still a good showing. The stall holders raised £200 for the Trust, and my personal stall raised £100 for the Food Bank. This was a bit of a tentative try out, because of the circumstances. Next time, we will publicize more widely, when a bit more certainty comes our way.
Thanks to all who helped by providing and putting up flags, moving stalls and clearing up.

Well done everybody and nil desperandum!
