Shipston Victorian Evening 2017

SBK Coconut Shy Shipston Victorian Evening

SBK Coconut Shy Shipston Victorian EveningStaff from Sheldon Bosley Knight donned their best Victorian outfits and hosted a coconut shy at this year’s Victorian Evening in Shipston-on-Stour.

The stall proved very popular, testing the aim of all those who took part and bringing out the competitive streak in some!  Each contestant had three goes at knocking the coconuts off their perch and those who succeeded were rewarded with a bag of sweets.

There was a great atmosphere and the town square was packed with happy shoppers enjoying the array of stalls selling gifts, crafts, festive foods, and trying their luck at various raffles and tombolas.

SBK Coconut Shy Shipston Victorian EveningThe evening was opened by the Mayor and the Shipston Town Band were joined by children from the local primary schools for some carol singing.

SBK raised approximately £100 at the time of writing, which will go to the Rotary Club charities.  Thank you to all those who came to our stall and supported the event.

In charge of the stall were Peter Leamy from our Planning & Architectural team dressed as Scrooge along with Liz Smith and Kate Billing both from our Shipston Residential Sales Team.

The stall was very popular and all the coconuts had been won by the end of the evening!  We would like to say a big Thank You to all those who took part.

Organised by the Rotary Club of Shipston-on-Stour and in its 16th year, the Victorian Evening is always well attended and raises much needed funds for a variety of causes supported by Rotary.

We are also very pleased that Shipston Primary School will be borrowing the coconut shy equipment for their Summer Fete next year and delighted that it will have a second airing.  Mark it in your diary now to pop along and have a go!
