Today's Advent Fair

A selection of home-made cakes in the pop-up Cow Shed Cafe - it's not an open day without cakes!

Rosie's food van serving gorgeous burgers in the farmyard (alongside Sonja's tombola and our newly reclaimed picnic benches).

Crafts in the cob barn - making "all the king's horses and all the king's men" for the Miner's Chapel Christmas Tree Festival.

Crafts and spontaneous festive singing in the cob barn.

Meeting the chickens and collecting eggs.

Eleven members of Pendeen Silver Band playing carols in the farmyard to end the day - wonderful.
Many thanks to everyone who helped make our Advent Fair such a lovely experience - people who baked cakes or made soup, Rosie with her food van (and her sister Catrina who played cello in the cob barn), people who ran the crafts, Sophie who sold her jarred produce in the packing shed, everybody who sang or played an instrument served in the cafe or shop or took people to collect eggs or look round the polytunnels - and everybody who came on the day.
