Sale of curios to help church and Grantham schools

Have your say

A sale of items from Hungerton Hall on Sunday will benefit a church and Grantham schools.

Isobel Burford is carrying out the wishes of her late grandmother, Lady Le Marchant, who died last year aged 102. It was her wish that a sale of items from her home should take place to raise money for the parish church in Wyville and the Grantham Additional Needs Fellowship (GANF), which she had supported for some years.

The sale will take place at Wyville Village Hall, from 11am to 3pm, and will include hundreds of vintage and household items, antiquarian books, and ‘curiosities’. There will be supporting events, including a ‘have a go’ clay pigeon shoot, trailer rides around Hungerton farm, competitions, traditional games, a bouncy castle, stalls, a barbecue, a bar run by local brewery Oldershaw, and an auction of promises.

Isobel said: “I am really looking forward to it. People have put so much effort into it. If it all goes to plan then it will have made all the effort worthwhile.”

East Midlands Today presenter Dominic Heale will also officially open the Forest School, next to the hall, which is used by GANF as an outdoor classroom on land given to it by Lady Le Marchant.
