There was a great turnout on Saturday for the auction event held at Ide Hill village hall. We had informative speeches from Sir Michael Fallon MP and Richard Ashworth, an independent MEP for South East England.
Sir Michael spoke about the all important budget framework that will enable the district to provide more housing. Richard Ashworth spoke of the Brexit talks taking place. He made an interesting statement to do with the words 'divorce bill' - by recommending, we replace this negative term of phrase with the process actually taking place - an 'accountancy demerger exercise'. I like that!
Before the talks commenced there were lovely nibbles laid on by the wonderful Wendy Fallon, and drinks. Afterwards, we had a raffle draw (I won twice)! Mr Julian Parkin acted as our entertaining auction master in the delightful auction that saw me walk away with, 2 crystal perfume bottles, a delonghi expresso coffee maker and chandeliers, all at bargain prices - happy days!
