Abbots in Transition community market returns to Henderson Hall
Henderson Hall was once again transformed into a busy market square this weekend with fresh locally grown produce on sale.
The Abbots in Transition community market returned to the village on Saturday and organisers say they are delighted by the steady footfall throughout the day.
In addition to the usual selection of stalls run by locally-based producers, pupils from Breakspeare School manned a stall to sell goods they had produced themselves.
Proceeds from the sales are understood to be going towards specialised equipment to help pupild with disabilities get in and out of swimming pools.
Organiser Ian Bond said: "It was a very successful event that attracted a lot of people.
"It has been a difficult year for growers with the unusual weather systems we have seen but despite this growers still had a good range to offer."
Caroline Whately-Smith added: "The market went very well, there was a steady stream of people all day and the table holders all seemed to be happy.
"What we would like to try and do more of in future is getting people who don’t have enough to need a full table to bring stuff and contribute to a shared one."
