Saturday, 23 August – that’s the date to pop on your calendars for the 2014 Summer Fete and it’s Bank Holiday weekend! We are making a return to the Jubilee Park this year, so whatever the weather we will be beneath the marquee for all your favourite traditional stalls and games with an extra surprise or two to boot.
This is, of course, the first fete to be held since Jean Jones sadly passed away last year. Jean organised the church fete brilliantly for over 30 years, all the while working so hard fund raising for St Lawrence Church. We are very pleased therefore to hold the fete in memory of Jean and honoured to have the Jones family to open the fete at 2pm.
Proceeds from the fete will be for St Lawrence Church, the village hall and the village shop. In addition, 10% of the funds raised will be given to the League of Friends at Black Torrington surgery, a deserving cause, which is very supportive in our community.
If you have any ideas for new stalls, games or activities for the fete – please get in touch, your suggestions are very welcome and if you would like to help out with the setting up, running a stall or game, your assistance would be much appreciated.
More details of the all fun to be had will be in the next issue of the Chronicle.
We’re looking forward to it already!
