Annual Village Fete
Date: 10 June 2017
Location: Barham Church, IP6 0PT
The annual Church fete takes place on Saturday 10th June starting at 2.00pm, with a weekend long flower festival in the Church.
This event is very much part of our village life having taken place every year for over 60 years come rain or shine. It is a great opportunity to get out and meet up with old friends and to meet new ones. Whilst it is a fundraising event, success is measured more my the fact that people enjoy it rather than the amount of money made so an effort is always made to ensure that it is fun and affordable for all ages. We will have all the traditional side shows to try your skill/luck at as well as bargains in next-to-new, white elephant. books and plants. If you want to buy a home-made cake make sure you are not late as this is always one of the most popular stalls.
There will be a bouncy castle there for the youngsters. Offers of help or stock for stalls, bottles for the bottle tombola or prizes for the main raffle would be much appreciated. Please contact Roger (831079) or Des (831804) or email email@example.com. We look forward to seeing you there. If it is wet, please still turn out as there will be plenty of tents to shelter in. Footnote - we have a long standing policy for this event and our Christmas Bazaar that we do not have any commercial stalls as space is limited and also so that those attending know that all proceeds go to towards the maintenance and improvement of the Parish Church.
This year’s event is going to be held in the Church Grounds . For those who are unfamiliar with the Church, there is a good sized grass area behind the Church which is bounded by the Church building and a row of trees and should make an ideal place to hold a fete, We will also have the added benefit of being able to use the hall and Church to escape to if the weather is less than ideal
Unfortunately the Church is a little way out of the village but there is plenty of parking and we are also planning to run a shuttle bus from the village. For those who are able, the Church is also easily accessible on foot using the footpath leading off the bottom of Thornhill Road opposite the bus stop then The Slade to come out opposite the Church gate.
