Autumn Bazaar

Third Pant Autumn Bazaar deemed a success

Pant Autumn Bazaar held on Saturday 7 October this year raised more than £450 towards the upkeep of Pant Memorial Hall and saw over 170 people attend.

The Bazaar, was supported by a number of local stallholders and charities including Oswestry Country Markets, local Pant beekeepers Chris and Jayne, the Restore the Montgomery Canal campaign and Cae Post. These stalls were joined by a number of individuals and stalls organised by volunteers from Pant Memorial Hall.

Pant Memorial Hall was founded as a resource for all the people of Pant and the Autumn Bazaar was an ideal opportunity to showcase its facilities as a community hall in North Shropshire and a focal point for the village.

Thanks to the generosity of individuals and local businesses, the Memorial Hall was able to raise over £450, which will go towards the maintenance of the hall.

Speaking about the event, Helen, Secretary of the committee said: “The Memorial Hall is an asset for the whole village and we are grateful for all the hard work put in by the committee and local businesses to make this year’s Bazaar a success. Among many sponsors and donors, the Cross Guns Inn donated a meal, Cambrian Heritage Railway donated a free train trip and lots of Oswestry businesses donated prizes to the tombola which all meant we could raise over £450 for the hall. We’d like to thank everyone who made the event such a success again this year.”

The committee at Pant Memorial Hall will be considering whether to hold a similar event in 2018 but in the meanwhile will be looking at the possibility of putting on more events in future.
