Cake Stall

Everyone's favourite please make the cake stall a great success by baking cakes to sell on the stall. Donations of cakes can be brought at band practice on Friday 13th or on the day - thanks

Family Stalls/Table top sale

Don't miss out on this great opportunity to run your own stall in aid of Martlesham Brass, the wackier the better, or if you just want to hire a table (for a small fee) to sell your unwanted items. Please email Jayne Howlett so enough tables can be allocated.

Craft stalls

A great opportunity for a bit of retail therapy!

We will need your help!!

During the course of the afternoon we would really appreciate some of your time to help us supervise the stalls. Additional assistance is crucial as many of the fundraising committee will be performing at some point during the afternoon! If you can help please email Jayne Howlett or look out for the sheet to complete at band practice over the next few weeks.

And last but not least ... The chance to chill out in the sun (fingers crossed!) and listen to all of the bands that make Martlesham Brass.
