The Memorial Hall and Playing Fields were host to the Jubilee Fete to mark the Queen’s Jubilee on the 4th June.
With stalls including ‘Water or Wine’, A Tombolla and Name the Teddy it combined the best in traditional village fete stalls alongside a car boot sale and stalls selling a range of items from arts and crafts through to plants. The Women’s Institute served a delicious range of cakes and refreshments (which sold out) and the village was out in force to not only have fun, and make the most of the weather but also to support the hall. All the funds raised are going towards the refurbishment of the toilets.
Fetes, however big or small, need a keen team of organisers and notable thanks need to be given to Barbara who rejuvenated the idea of a village fete and notably Anne who took over the organisation and ensured the day ran without a hitch – well done. The hall was decorated by the Memorial Hall Committee members (thanks go to all) and Sue and Christine kept the team going with sandwiches during the morning set-up. The festive bunting and Public Address System were supplied by J.R Light and Sound with the help of Jamie and Roy and our amazing BBQ was prepared, lit and expertly cooked by David and Peter. With drinks served by Jan, behind the Memorial Hall Bar.
Finally, an extra note of thanks to Pete, our Entertainments Officer, who supplied his ‘Flying Chickens’ stall. A stall so popular its already been booked for next year and might be seen popping up at other local fetes.
See you all next year, Flying Chickens included….
