All gazebos welcome!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR THE TEA TENT!

For the tea tent we need volunteers to cover the Teas, Refreshments and Rest Area by:

  1. Making/providing refreshments (last year it was agreed that it would be sensible to provide more savoury refreshments as well as cakes)

and/or

  1. Helping during the Fete, on a rota basis, with the provision of Teas and looking after the Rest Area. It worked quite well last year with people dipping in and out of both jobs and generally being versatile.

We look forward to hearing from you, hope that you can assist and would welcome the involvement from any new residents.

Please be kind enough to let any of us know if you are able to help:
