The Sapcote Summer Fayre 2019  By Hewins Gilbert  

I’d like to say what a wonderful day 
Was the Sapcote Summer Fayre, 
The weather again was perfect 
With sunshine for all to share. 
Our thanks to all who worked so hard 
To make it a success, 
And those who worked behind the stalls 
Our thanks to you is no less. 
What a joy it was to meet with friends, 
The chatting went on and on 
Until it was time to say goodbye, 
Too soon the day was gone.
