PHOTOS: Chewbacca seen in Woodbury! ….at Stallcombe House’s summer fayre

Visitors to Stallcombe House’s annual summer fayre enjoyed a day of family fun and browsing a host of stalls and meeting Chewbacca from Star Wars.

Each year visitors snap up a home-made bargain and the chance to buy plants and produce grown by the Stallcombe House residents, from their Sanctuary Lane site, in Woodbury.

Amanda Greenaway, head of charity for Stallcombe House, said: “The day was attended by close to 1000 visitors who all enjoyed the barbecue and Stallcombe’s home grown hog roast, ice creams, cream teas and cakes galore.

“There was a licensed bar and live music throughout the day with lots of stalls and games for everyone to enjoy as well as the chance to buy a selection of home-grown plants and produce from the organic gardens, and artwork made in the Stallcombe weavery.”

Fete organisers said they were ‘indebted’ to the businesses who supported the summer fayre, saying without their sponsorship, the event would not have been possible.

They include the butchers at Darts Farm, AJ’s taxis, Redwoods  Accountants, Mr T BBQ Man, County House, Withycombe, Acorn Tyres , Moores Pasties, the MOD Hunter Troop.

Stallcombe House is a residential home and working environment for people with learning disabilities and autism.

Stallcombe is keen to hear from community partners and visitors looking to volunteer, buy produce, join in future events, or who want to learn more about the residential home and workplace.
