Foxearth Village Fete – 24th June 2017

The sun shone, the people came and the only slightly troublesome factor was the breeze which tried to redistribute the raffle tickets – but compared with the deluge of yesteryear we were blessed! So the annual village fete in the lovely gardens of Hunters Lodge on 24th June was a success from all points of view. From the outset the reliable and expert Melford Silver Band entertained with their varied selections. Sustenance came in the form of a Pimms bar, a burger stall and delicious teas  and ices. A bouncy castle was just one of the attractions in the childrens’ games department and for those wanting a flutter there were tombola and raffle tables. There were stalls for cakes, plants, costume jewellery and craft work . The crossword competition was won by Rosemary Branwhite, Churchwarden at Belchamp Otten and Steven Starling of Great Bentley- a cousin of the compiler; both received their choice of tipple!

The result was a magnificent £1,365 for Parish Church funds . We thank all who helped in the event,  all who came along and we express our sincere appreciation to Louise and Nick for allowing us to invade their home once again.
