Baaasics Hampshire … at Overton Sheep Fair


Every four years (remind you of something?)  the village of Overton in north Hampshire holds a Sheep Fair – to celebrate its past, the village and to raise funds.   Sheep feature quite largely – on your left, if you look closely, a firesheep on a fire truck.

This year the talented team behind Workbox, a group of skilled craftswomen,  chose BASICS Hampshire as their charity.  And they did brilliantly raising funds – and also raising our profile.

Their shop had continual traffic despite the rainy days.

BASICS Hamphire consultants from the north of Hampshire were out in force to support all the efforts Workbox had put in.   Louisa Chan came with the north BASICS Hampshire car, Bruce Armstrong with his ImBike (Immediate Care Bike)  and Howard Simpson with his camera and with the privilege of possessing a father in the Overton parade.

“Brilliant”, says Dr Lou Chan, “and Workbox were superb.  Next time we want our own BASICS Hampshire sheep for the event – and to be in the parade if we’re allowed.” Workbox will be consulted for advice on sheep design and any of their magnificent expertise in fund-raising.
