The Annual Village Fete
The Village School Fete is organised by the Village School Association and is an annual event which usually takes place on the third Saturday in June. Although primarily a school event, it draws people from the village and surrounding area both as spectators and participants. It is run as a village event and a fund raiser for the school, and is a huge success in both these aims.
Various games are available for the children (and adults) to enjoy. A popular event is the Tug of War competition, with adult and junior teams taking part. The adult competition, usually between Pub Teams is a hard fought event. The children's competition is perhaps less intense but no less hard fought. However, it is with great regret and embarrassment that it has to be admitted that cheating has been noted on occasions with young, light weight teams suddenly acquiring additional team members during pulls!
