Psychic Fayre’s final weekend is over and we have at last hung up our funky jackets, but what a way to go! After 18 events in 2013 we went out on a high with the Hallowe’en fayre at Weymouth Pavilion – one of our busiest ever, and with our biggest-ever one-day total for a charity raffle with a fantastic £260 raised for Autism Wessex. All that hard work paid off.
But Psychic Fayre was never supposed to take over our lives! It started small in 2009 with a one-off event in our hometown of Bridport to showcase therapies and other ‘alternatives’… causing such a stir we were encouraged to continue. We bought the domain www.psychicfayre.com and, early in 2010, launched our little enterprise as a ‘hobby’ partnership.
It grew! By February 2013 we had reached number one/two on Google search for ‘psychic fayre/fair’, received the 2012 APCTC promoter of the Year award in March, and by autumn our events covered all counties in England’s South West. And during our events we, together with Patrick Gamble who generously donated one of his beautiful pictures to raffle at every fayre, have also raised well over £3,000 for a range of charities.
But now it’s time for us to refocus: we’ve given our all to Psychic Fayre, but we both have our own distinct and too-long-neglected paths to follow – Liz her artwork, Sue her therapies – and now it’s their turn for our energies.
Thank you all for the last four wonderful years. We'll see you again, of course... but we won't be wearing the jackets!
