Traditional Village Fete
The annual Church Fete this year will take place on Saturday 4th June in the in the CHURCH GROUNDS starting at 2.00pm. We have move the venue of the fete as we are in an Interregnum and Rectory are currently let on a short term tenancy agreement. This event is very much part of our village life having taken place every year for over 60 years come rain or shine and we hope that parishioners will still support us at our changed venue this year. It is a great opportunity to get out and meet up with old friends and to meet new ones. Whilst it is a fundraising event, success is measured more my the fact that people enjoy it rather than the amount of money made so an effort is always made to ensure that it is fun and affordable for all ages. We will have all the traditional side shows to try your skill/luck at as well as bargains in next-to-new, white elephant. books and plants. If you want to buy a home-made cake make sure you are not late as this is always one of the most popular stalls. There will be a bouncy castle there for the youngsters.
Offers of help or stock for stalls, bottles for the bottle tombola or prizes for the main raffle would be much appreciated. Please contact Roger Colthorpe (831079) or Des Groom (831804) or email [email protected]
There will be a Floral Celebration of the Queen's Birthday Year over that weekend providing an additional attraction for visitors to the fete.
We look forward to seeing you there. If it is wet, please still turn out as there will be plenty of tents to shelter in as well as the Church and Church Hall.
Footnote - we have a long standing policy for this event and our Christmas Bazaar that we do not have any commercial stalls as space is limited and also so that those attending know that all proceeds go to towards the maintenance and improvement of the Parish Church.
