I thought it was about time we introduced some of the Chudfest organisers, so this is the first of a series of ‘Meet the Team’ which will run over the next few weeks.
Mark Macnair is treasurer of Chudfest. He is also responsible for running the Bar during Chudfest week, which has made a profit of over £2000 in each of the past two years. Mark and his wife Vicky have organised several Chudfest events, including the Open Gardens, the Fete, and the Produce Show.
Vicky and Mark also trade under the name “The Chudleigh Kitchen”. They cater for events big and small, with all the profits going to charity. Excess produce from their garden gets turned into jams, jellies and chutneys, which are on sale outside their house on Old Exeter Road. All the proceeds from this stall go to the Ectodermal Dysplasia Society, and over the past two years the stall has made almost £3000 for this charity.
