Fete Volunteer

Help is needed for our traditional village fete, which takes place on the afternoon of Saturday 10th June!

So there are just over two weeks to go and we are looking forward to welcoming you the fete at Church End, Flint Street and on Manor Farm.

One of the main aims of the Fete is to raise money for local good causes and organisations.

Community events like this rely heavily on adult volunteers so if you are able to lend a hand in any way, we'd love to hear from you. If you can spare just 1 — 1.5 hours you will still have loads of time to enjoy the fete as well.

  • Selling Programmes from 12.45 for one hour, until 15.45 (with entry to the Lucky Programme Raffle Prize draw)
  • Road Marshalls from 12.00 for one hour until 17.00
