Support Your Local Fete!


I just love a good village fete. There is something very ‘Darling Buds of May’ about a decent fete in fabulous weather. Ive been lucky enough to go to 2 so far this summer (One performing, one pleasure) and have another in the diary too. It is wonderful how a little place can rally together and create something lovely each year!

Snitterfield Village Fete was yet again great. This year had a light Back to the Future theme, with the presence of a DeLorean and the compare dressing as Doc! I just wish that they had a better variety of vintage cars and stalls there. Maybe a carboot area would work well? They have some great entertainment from a choir, ukulele group…myself obviously…and even a mini Crufts. Eatery wise, they had a pig roast (yum!), cream teas and more.

I happened to be invited along to a very quaint fete in Pershore this weekend just gone. My friend’s daughter was one of the May Pole dancers and I couldn’t wait to go and see! It was a great set up, right in the heart of the village, either side of a little brook. There were even a couple of stall in people’s gardens! This one had a dog show too, a couple of guys playing guitar and a duck race. It was lovely to have some real bric-a-brac stalls to rummage through , but not enough of a selection of savouries to eat unfortunately. Luckily our friend had made us a slap up lunch, so we just wanted an ice cream in the shade!

So here are some photos of both days for you. I do hope you support your local fairs? Usually they are raising money for a village fund, school, youth club or the like, so it really is important to have you there.
