We would like thank all those people who helped again this year with the Village Fete, whether by setting up on day, running stalls, providing events, buying draw tickets, or just coming along on the day to spend your cash!

We made just over £3,900 profit this year – a great result! The money will be split equally between the Village Hall & All Saints Church and help with planned repairs and improvements.
