Camphill in Grangemockler

The Camphill Community in Grangemockler welcomed family, friends, neighbours and many visitors from near and afar to their annual summer fair on a welcome warm summer day last Sunday.

The Camphill Community in Grangemockler welcomed family, friends, neighbours and many visitors from near and afar to their annual summer fair on a welcome warm summer day last Sunday.

All were treated to a feast of home baked treats, jams and organic juices produced by the Camphill Community along with the delights of freshly made waffles and barbequed burgers and sausages cooked on request.

Bric-a-brac stalls and books were also on sale along with locally crafted pottery and candles and beautifully hand woven crafts in abundance in the weaving workshop, while butter making in the traditional way was demonstrated in the courtyard throughout the afternoon.

Children and adults queued for the tractor rides around the farm and pony rides were popular for the younger visitors.

Tables were adorned with plants, shrubs and herbs for sale while ‘guess the weight’ of the animal challenges attracted many a curious viewer to give it a go.

Races and activities for the children were popular along with face painting, fabric painting and fishing for prizes all enjoyed to a backdrop of live musical entertainment.

A raffle took place later in the afternoon with many prizes all generously donated from local businesses and individuals.

Most took time to relax, chat and mingle over and tea, coffee and home bakes in the dining room before joining the action outside again.

All at Camphill Grangemocker would like to thank everyone who kindly contributed, attended and donated to the Summer Fair.

All are welcome to attend a coffee morning and Bring & Buy Plant Sale in aid of the South Tipperary Hospice at the Log Cabin, Nine Mile House on Saturday, May 26 between 10.30am and 1pm.
