First, we hope that everyone is keeping safe, well and continuing to get through this current situation as best they can.
For transparency we wanted to share with you our current thinking about the event this year and to ask for your support and patience as we carefully review all the possible options.
As you know the Fete is held on the August bank holiday each year, which this year falls on 31 August. As it stands, there is no government or local authority guidance which reaches that far into the summer, so at this stage we do not know whether or not such large public gatherings will be permitted by then. Increasingly though this feels optimistic.
At this stage we have not cancelled the event, but the current level of uncertainty means we are not taking any bookings or able to give details about possible content.
We are monitoring the position and our options closely and we will provide a further update by the end of May.
In the meantime, we wish everyone the best in the strange and uncertain times and know that this will end and good times lie ahead.
Best wishes, The Fete Committee

It will come as no surprise to you that the traditional Christian Aid envelope delivery and collection in the village will not be taking place this year. Our generous parish usually sends around £2000 to help the poorest and most vulnerable. This year, our main fundraising will have to be online, and if you feel able to donate, you can do so at:
You are also invited to be a part of a vibrant, virtual Christian Aid Week and join their online community, by taking part in their daily quizzes.
Sign up at caweek.org/virtualresources and they'll email you more information about these events.
With best wishes for your health and happiness,

On the 24th March 2020 the Trustees agreed unanimously to allocate an emergency grant of £300 to CareBank, for the printing of literature to be distributed to those in the Parish who need help and assistance during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown. The first batch of literature contained a timetable of virtual events and activities along with activity sheets containing knitting patterns, recipes, quizzes and things to do, and a vital list of assistance contact numbers. The social diary of virtual events and activity packs were delivered to over 400 households across the Parish!
