Friends raise more than £300

The day dawned fine and sunny for the Yorkshire Day event held by the Friends of the Parsonage. After a slow start lots of people found their way to the small field next to the Museum where the recently purchased gazebos made a colourful sight.

The tea and home-made cakes proved very popular. The Book and Craft stalls also did a good trade, and it was noticed that many who bought went away only to return for a repeat visit to find another bargain.

Many people appreciated the tranquil setting, an oasis of calm away from the busy Main Street of Haworth, lingering over their drinks whilst enjoying the first fine day for weeks. A total of £337.24 was raised and The Friends would like to thank everyone who came and supported them.
