Reminder: Village Party follows the Fete

From Georgina Parker:


The weather is set fair for Saturday’s fete (fingers crossed!) and it should be a great day, but don’t forget to buy your tickets now for the village party on Saturday night. The tickets which include supper are £7.50 adults, £2.50 under 18s and under 5s are free. It’s a chance to relax after the fete, chat with friends over a nice drink and food, and if the fancy takes you let the music and the  line dancing  get you in a party mood! Don’t be shy, it really is great fun but if you are totally ideologically opposed to line dancing that’s fine too – go and prop up the bar,  or sit outside on a straw bale enjoying what will hopefully be a fine summers evening! Bring along your cowboy hat (and your friends) and have fun – yeehah!

You’ve probably already had a visit from us, but you can contact any of the following for tickets: Marian Marsh, Sally Oakley, Gilly Strawford, Dave Wyper, Georgina Parker, Jean Atkins or Valentine Thornhill or email
