  2003 Fete
  • The last Fete in 2003 exceeded all expectations, raising over £10,000 for local community groups, and all who attended enjoyed a fantastic day of family fun. The 2003 Fete website gives you details of the attractions, sponsors and events, including 90 photos of the day itself, and 40 scarecrows. With your help, we hope to make the 2005 Fete even bigger and better.
