50/50 Auction

 
 
Saturday 18th August 2007

Radley Village Hall was packed with an assortment of unusual and valuable items which were quickly snapped up by eager bargain hunters who know when they are on to a good thing!  The generosity of the people who put items up for sale and then donated all of the proceeds meant that the Campaign Chest was increased by a further sum to go towards the legal fees which have been incurred by the Town Green Process and the legal challenge being mounted by Save Radley Lakes against Oxfordshire County Council to ensure that due process is followed.

A child brought their man-sized teddy bear for sale to help the cause.  Another person donated Royal Doulton China. The teas and refreshments were to the usual high standard which has become the SRL Trade mark and the kitchen did a roaring trade as people waited for the lots to come under the Auctioneer's hammer.  Mr Michael Harrison who had officiated at the Radley Fete and Flower Show Auction came with his considerable expertise to persuade the participants to part with as much money as possible and he did this very successfully.
