I did a craft/art fair on Saturday that was over an hours drive away in Cheddar. Attendance was very disappointing, with long periods when no-one came in. Everyone was puzzled by this, since previous events at this venue have apparently been well attended. All was revealed late in the day however, by one visitor who quite openly admitted that because her local church was having a Chistmas Bazaar on the same day, church members had been going around taking down the small posters publicising the fair, in order to reduce competition. It became clear that of the 130 signs erected, only 30 were left, when the organiser went to remove them at the close of the show...

So - thank you whoever you are, I'm sure you would like to know that thanks to your Christian charity, most of us made a thumping loss on the day.
