This year’s village fete, held on the private lawns of Palace House on Saturday 18 July,

will be opened by TV presenter and historian Dan Snow.

The organising committee is always pleased to hear from local residents who would like to help, and are particularly seeking young and fit individuals to assist with the Friday morning set-up and Saturday late afternoon clear-up. If you would be interested in helping, in any capacity, please telephone Peter Melhuish on 02381 788034.
