A huge thank you to everyone for helping to make the 2023 fête the best yet!
On the hottest day of the year so far, the green and village hall saw a wide range of activities from early to late, and by sundown it was almost as though nothing had ever happened. The way the fête springs up like a field of mushrooms and just as quickly disappears is thanks to all the hard work of hundreds. Here are a selection of images from the fête.
That amazing effort allowed us to raise well over £9,000 for our causes, one of our best ever results. If you were a visitor, a stallholder, a dog owner, an exhibitor, or a volunteer — we couldn’t have done it without you.
The main local beneficiary for this year’s fete was Basingstoke and District Young Carers, providing support young carers aged 8 to 18 living within the Basingstoke & Deane District.
Donations also went to the upkeep of our village hall and to St Leonard’s Church.
The planning has started for 2024, so please save the date – 8th June (second Saturday). and please do contact us if you would like to be part of the organising team, or if you can offer to help us in other ways. Offer your help here, drop us an email, or post on our Facebook page.
