2014 Village Fete

Ploughman's lunches are available in the Village Hall from 12 - followed during the day by teas in the hall & ice-creams, drinks, & a BBQ on the green.  

The official opening is at 1.  Stalls include cakes, plants, books, bottles, china & glass, white elephants - & this year a handbag stall - as well as the School's arts & crafts, tombola & tuck.  Games include Aunt Sally, bowls, coconuts, fishing, hoop-la, jousting, skittles, slack-line & others - as well as guessing the weight of a cake, & meeting & guessing something about a recently-born calf.  

There is a dog show at 2.30, School Maypole dancing & jazz - & a Grand Raffle.  

The Fete ends with a tug-of-war competition across the brook at 4.45: advance entry (& £5 fee) - & immortality on the Bledington Shield for the winning team.

The Fete needs volunteers, for stalls & admin (please ring Jeremy Gould on 658503), for setting up & organising games (Robert Pearson on 659972), & for baking cakes for the cake stall (please deliver to the hall after 10): newcomers are especially welcome.  

It's a wonderful day for children, for all the family - including grandparents, & godparents - & for inviting friends: please bring them all.
