South Wraxall Village Fete – Success

From Jasmine Charles-Jones:

What a fantastic village fête and festival! A truly momentous day, with plenty of entertainment and fundraising activities bringing the village and ‘the rest of the world’ together.

A huge thank you goes out to all those who gave their time to make the fête such a great success and also to those who turned out on the day to support the village.

On behalf of the Village Hall & St. James’ Church, we would like to give special thanks to Tracy & Bob Dunn, who led the troops in organising the event and also to the Toby & Nicky Minter for allowing the village to commandeer their field.

These sterling efforts, resulted in a fantastic profit of  £8,007, which will be split equally between St. James’ Church and the Village Hall.
