Fete finale to Littlebury summer season

PUBLISHED: 15:14 08 July 2010

LITTLEBURY has been alive with summer activities over the past month, but the village’s summer season draws to a close this Saturday afternoon with the ever popular annual Summer Fete.

The season kicked off with the Open Gardens afternoon and was followed by the Craft and Gift Fair in the village hall. Next came the ‘Music for a Summer Evening’ concert performed by the Fairhaven Singers, followed closely by the village’s own Garden Concert last Sunday.

Between them, these four events have raised several thousand pounds to support important local causes such as Littlebury’s village hall and church, as well as charities close to the heart of Littlebury people such as Home Start, Down Syndrome Education International and Realife Trust.

This year, Littlebury fete is to be held in the delightful gardens of the Old Rectory, off Cambridge Road, on Saturday July 10 from 2pm to 5pm. This lovely family event is the main fundraising activity for Holy Trinity Church and there will be plenty to keep the whole family occupied throughout the afternoon.

Try your hand at the traditional attractions like the coconut shy, crockery smash, quoits, and soaking the locals in the stocks, or the not-so traditional pursuits of ‘milking a cow’ (not a real one!) or line dancing. Relax with a cup of tea or a glass of Pimms, or enjoy an ice cream, strawberries and cream or delicious home-made cakes.

There’s plenty for the children too, with a bouncy castle, face painting, a drawing competition and much more. So come along on Saturday with your family and friends for a fun-filled afternoon.
