10:00am Thursday 8th August 2013 in News
THERE will be flights, feathers and flowers at a village’s traditional fete.
Attractions at Appleshaw’s fete on Monday, 26 August, will include helicopters, racing pigeons, a clay pigeon shoot and a flower and produce show.
It will open at 1pm in Appleshaw playing fields with fancy dress, a dog show, tug of war, classic cars, a bouncy castle, hog roast, beer, teas and cakes, home produce, children’s activities and many traditional stalls.
Steve Amey, chairman of the 2013 Appleshaw Fete Committee, said: “The Appleshaw Fete has something for all members of the family from zero to 110!
“Not only do we have all the traditional activities of a village fete, but also many attractions to keep everyone interested all afternoon.
“There is easy car parking and level access for wheelchairs and buggies, plus free entry for all.”
He added: “Be there in time to watch the racing pigeon release at the fete opening at 1pm.
“Come for lunch with our hog roast and barbecue and stay for tea with delicious home-made cakes and ice-creams, or the beer!
“Browse to your heart’s content on the bric-a-brac and book stalls while the children enjoy their activities, and others have a go at the clay pigeon shoot in the adjoining field.
“Bring the family dog for the fun dog show so no-one is left out.”
Proceeds from the fete will be distributed to a wide variety of local causes such as a playgroup, school and church and other organisations are invited to make bids for a share of the profit.
Donations of bric-a-brac, books, gifts, bottles, as well as produce, plants and cakes are welcome.
The Appleshaw Village Hall will be open from 6pm to 8pm on Wednesday, 21 August, and 10am until 12pm on Saturday, 24 August, to receive any donated items.
Arrangements for collection can also be made by calling 01264 773790. Cakes and perishable produce can be donated on the day.
