Winner of ‘Old Bag’ competition announced

In the spirit of reuse and recycling, the organisers asked visitors to bring along their favourite vintage Cornwall Christmas Fair bag. With the support of Lillicrap Chilcott, guests did not disappoint bringing shopping bags from as far back as eleven years ago. All those sporting an old bag at the event were entered into a prize draw to win a day’s pass for two to Swim Club at Watergate Bay Hotel with a two-course lunch for two in The Living Space and we are thrilled to announce the lucky winner is Naomi De-grey Warter of Fowey.

In Naomi’s own words “The Cornwall Christmas Fair in support of Macmillan is a firm date in the diary every year. It is a brilliant opportunity to support a wonderful charity, spend time with a group of friends I go with each year and kick start the Christmas shopping. It was an added bonus to find that this year I had won the ‘Old Bag’ draw of a relaxing day for 2 at Watergate Bay hotel enjoying the swim club and a 2 course lunch. What a generous prize for something as simple as bringing along one of the plethora of Macmillan bags that are in my possession. Thank you to all those who work so tirelessly to make the event happen and those who generously donate ingredients or prizes.”

Don’t forget the 2020 Cornwall Christmas Fair will take place on Thursday 12 November (Preview Wednesday 11) at the Eden Project.
