The Village Fete is nearly here — on Saturday 8th June, at Church End Green and Flint Street. The organisers are looking for help during the afternoon, principally in selling Prize Draw programmes to visitors, and also with teas and other stalls. If you have any time available that day, also in the morning for setting up, please contact Tony Warris (Tel: 292273) so that we can once again raise money for worthwhile causes in the village (and enjoy ourselves while doing it!)
Cakes would be very welcome indeed. Please take your delicious donations to Joan O'Hare, at 15 The Gables, or deliver them in good time on Saturday morning to St Mary's Centre.
Bottles for the Tombola to Tim Armitt at 41 The Gables
Gazebos — additional cover is needed for Fete stalls. If you can let the organisers borrow a gazebo for the day, please can you contact Tony Warris (Tel: 292273).
