We held a very successful stall in Fareham Shopping Centre on Saturday 20th February. We were pleased to welcome the Mayor of Fareham, Cllr Ruth Godrich, and other members of the Borough Council including the Leader, Cllr Seán Woodward. We appreciated the support of the Co-Op, Sainsburys and Marks & Spencer, all of whom gave us or lent us goods for our display.

A selection of photographs from this event can be seen below; click on a small picture to see a larger version.
