How we work
The Fete committee meets approximately monthly from January through to August with a couple of extra meeting around the Fete. The committee is a subcommittee of the PCC (Parochial Church Council). We agree on what events, stalls and entertainment we will have each year and work together to organise the event. On the day the Fete is run by a large group of stallholders a few of whom are on the committee. Volunteers help to set up the Tents and equipment and to take this down and pack away at the end.
The Fete is a great way to get involved is a historical village event and we offer a warm welcome to anyone who wants to take part just contact us via the link below.
