Are you thinking of having a spring clean and clear out now that the lighter and brighter days are with us? If so and you have unwanted items, we would be more than happy to collect them to sell at the Little Bytham Village Fete (all proceeds to Village Organisations). Any item will be most welcomed, books, bric-a-brac, household equipment, textiles, tools, china, in fact anything that you don't want. Please call Isobel (410740) if you need more information, or would like your contribution collected. Many thanks!
