VILLAGE FETE

Very many thanks to all who helped and contributed!

Sunday turned out fine with a gentle breeze and all the gazebos and tents remained in place!  The tea tent sold everything; all the tombola prizes were won; most of the coconuts were removed from their perches; a few rats were batted; lots of books were sold; and everyone was entertained with delightful live music by Alastair Chisholm and his group.

Although we are still waiting for details we made about £990 which is a brilliant total to be shared between the Church Tower Fund and Community Shop.

The fabulous bake off winners were as follows:

Adult Cupcake Category: Julia Hobbie

Best Vegan Cake: Sally Mollett

Best Overall Cake: Sally Mollett

The My Minstead Showstopper Winner: Michelle Haworth

  

Yum!
