Buckland Newton Village Fete 2022

It may still be April, but planning for the Village Fete 2022 has begun already! This year the Fete Committee is looking for volunteers to: • Help set up the stalls and put away again at the end of the day • Run various stalls, including "Chuck a Chicken" and the Bottle Tombola, etc • Bake a cake or two for the tea tent • Donate a bottle (alcoholic or not) And for Community groups to take a stall to raise their profile and support the Fete. If you are new to Buckland Newton and the surrounding area, the Fete is a great way to meet new people! Over the years many community groups have benefited from the funds raised by the Fete including the School, the Youth Club, the allotments, the Church etc. The Fete has also provided funds for community infrastructure such as replacing stiles with easy to walk through metal gates and in 2022 it is supporting the provision of a Speed Indicator Device (SID) for Buckland Newton. In 2022 the Fete Committee is asking that funds raised by Community Groups are pooled with the Fete's main funds so that all funding can be redistributed to groups fairly after the event. If you can help and would like to get involved, drop Kate Parish an email parishkate0@googlemail.com or give her a call on 07860 582362. The Committee would love to hear from you!
