Fête accompli

Congratulations to everyone involved in making today’s village fête a success. There was a convivial atmosphere around ten village playing fields, as visitors browsed the stalls, clambered around the fire engines, hurled the sevens vigorously through the inflatable assaults course or took turns at the archery stand, courtesy of Joe’s Bows, who also provided the birds of prey display. 

In the middle of the field, Morris dancers demonstrated that the historic tradition is alive and, er, kicking; children from the primary school did a maypole dancing display under the watchful eye of Mrs George; live music was provided by the YMS Steel Pan Band, and local MP Helen Whately brought her family along, to be lured in to the face-painting queue. 


 Thanks to all the team and all the volunteers who have worked to put the event together.
