Last year’s fete coincided with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee weekend, but we went ahead as usual and with a jubilee theme. There was the usual mix of fun and games, the dog show and of course the legendary tea tent and cake stall, and a good number of people came along and celebrated this special occasion in true community fashion, despite the stiff competition and the weather!
Looking forward to 2013, this year we are back in our riverside location at Tolls Farm. Volunteers are needed every year, both on and before the fête day, so if you think that you can help this year please contact Emma Heald (01260 227224).
