Rushden Village Fete - 16 June 2012

with thanks to John Dingemans 





 Another great fete! So far the fete has raised £4473. The new attractions at this yearís summer fete proved very popular.  Chris Hillís Green Goddess fire engine drew young and old alike as it trundled through the village, while the human juke box performers, Doug Wood, Dave Manchester, Simon Collis and Ian Roper kept the crowds entertained with their repertoire of songs. In the meantime, children disappeared into the hall and emerged later as animals & superheros after visiting the face painting stall.

The BBQ, ploughmans' lunches, cream teas & bar ensured that nobody left hungry or thirsty after a long afternoon browsing  and shopping at the different stalls and trying out all the different games.

Thank you to everybody who donated to the stalls and the army of helpers who contributed their time and efforts to making the day such a success. At the time of going to print, the proceeds are still being counted, but the total raised will be confirmed on and in next monthís Gazette.
