Village Fete – 8 July 2006 Due to superb planning, the Fete found a weather window this year – and that helped establish another record breaking financial performance. The village made a profit of £3667, easily exceeding the £3210 performance in 2005, and £2936 in 2004. As ever, the money will be distributed by the Community Association as contributions to village activities and organisations. All groups that want to apply for funds this year and haven’t received an application form should contact our Treasurer, James Davys on 834195.
The Fete was very kindly hosted again by David and Jenny Dobbin at Sotwell House, and we thank them heartily for their generosity and efforts in preparing their beautiful garden to be taken over by the village for the Fete and its preparation.
There were a number of new stalls this year, with some ‘first timers’ providing great new ideas. We always aim to make the Fete appeal to all ages. This year, the History Group made its debut with a collection of village photographs. Appealing to the other end of the age range, Anne Linton’s and Angela Lewis’s face painting stall did a roaring trade. Any comments and suggestions for the future will be gratefully received. Why not use The Villager to express your ideas.
