Sophie opens the Coombe Village Fete

Our co-founder Sophie was thrilled to be asked to open this year’s Coombe Village Fete in Cornwall. The event was held to celebrate the renovation of the local chapel into a village hall for the local community – a milestone occasion for a village so small it doesn’t have a pub, shop or post office. Coombe is a home from home for Sophie, with husband Simon’s family living in the heart of the village.

Sophie spent time talking to one trader, for whom the fete was her first ever day in business selling home made cupcakes. She sold out within hours, and was thrilled with her success. Since was launched in 2006, Sophie has been passionately seeking out people and products that display the best of handmade care and quality, so she was delighted to see these traits on such a large, community-wide scale at the fete.
