Village Fete – Saturday 5 July at 2-4.30pm at Sotwell House
This year’s Village Fete will be in the lovely gardens of Sotwell House, kindly hosted again by David and Jennie Dobbin. Our plans are well advanced and I am sure that the weather will be perfect again this year.
As usual, the Fete works as a collaboration between groups in the village. Each activity is managed by a separate group or individual (the PCC run the teas, for example). The Community Association collects the funds from each activity. Then the CA invites groups to submit requests for grants from our coffers (which usually includes other money we have collected at events during the year).
We are always looking for volunteers to help with the set up before this event, which is one of the highpoints in the Brightwell Calendar
You can find the schedule and entry form for the Flower and Produce Show in the centre pages of this Villager issue The Show appeals to all ages, of course, and we try to ensure the Fete always has a good balance of activities.
As well as the tried and tested stalls and games (bouncy castle, coconut shies, teas, tombola, books, brass band etc.) look out for something different.
Committee members will be collecting contributions to the white elephant, book and bottle stalls during the week before the Fete, so now is a good time to start thinking about what you are planning to discard. Please remember that we can’t take any electrical goods to sell, because of liability in case of accidents, and all donations (especially toys) must be in good working order. They simply won’t sell otherwise.Autumn Event – Saturday 18 October, 2014
Some 5 years or so ago we had an amazing evening of entertainment playing American Bingo... but with a difference. It was not just a question of getting the numbers in the correct line, but a whole range of different themes and ways to win prizes. People said it was one of the best events we have run so why not a repeat!
