Introducing the Everdon T towel 2016

After the success of the Everdon Jute bag we are introducing the Everdon T towel.

Made of unbleached high class cotton and once again using  a picture of the historic bridge in Everdon which has become the Fete Logo.

They will go on sale on fete day for £4. They are a limited edition and are likely to be very popular so preorders can be made by contacting everdonfete@gmail.com

Thank you to Lizzie Barwood for her hard working sourcing and designing them

Thank you to for our kind sponsors . Their sponsorship has meant that the production costs have been covered so all of the £4 goes to fete funds.
