A DREAM holiday at a stunning 17th century French property is being auctioned this weekend, as part of a community fund-raising campaign to carry out vital work at Acklington Village Hall.

The Rev Robert Parker is helping the cause by offering a one week’s stay at his seven-bedroomed, all en-suite house, which sleeps 14, in the Dordogne.

The vacation, to be taken in 2012, 2013 or 2014, subject to availability, will go to the highest bidder when it goes under the hammer on Sunday night.

More details will be given at the auction, which takes place at the village hall at 6pm. The holiday has a reserve price of £1,500.

Anyone wanting to bid but cannot attend the event should call Bob Smailes on 01670 760848, between now and Sunday, leaving a minimum and maximum bid.
