AN UPCOMING parish fete is set to take place on new grounds in 2023.

The Whitchurch Parish Fete will be taking place in its new home at the Whitchurch Silk Mill and Gill Nethercott Centre.

The fete had historically been held in the grounds of The Lawns. However, due to the land no longer being available, the fete has partnered with Whitchurch Silk Mill and Gill Nethercott Centre to provide a new home for the popular event.

During the fete, there will be a beer tent, a stall from River Test Gin alongside homemade cake, Indian street food and a variety of soft drinks on offer.

The Old Basing Royal British Legion Corps of Drums will also be in attendance as they parade through the town to formally open the fete at the Silk Mill, where the mayor will welcome in the parade.

A member of the fete committee, Steve Court, said: "Myself and the rest of the fete committee are excited to be bringing the fete back again this year and we cannot wait to welcome our community to the beautiful Whitchurch Silk Mill grounds."

The fete will be running between 12pm and 5pm, with entry for adults costing £2 each, while children under 16 will be able to get in for free.
