While some may be jetting off to the holiday of their dreams, for some this time of year means only one thing – a fete.
This wonderful tradition brings together the great and the good of the community as they set out their wares of Jam, Jumble and Jest.
Yes, tables stacked high with home-made produce wrestle for room with unwanted clothes and toys. But what of the jest I hear you shout?
Well a good fete is usually the best opportunity for normally quiet and reserved folk to let their hair down. Fancy dress, can a dad avoid a pie in the face – you name it, they’re up for it.
Of course it’s all good fun – and for good causes too. Whether you're raising money for a charity or for local much needed funds, good luck – hope it stays dry for you!
