A BIG thank you to everyone who worked so hard making the 2017 Church Fete such a huge success. To those who worked hard pulling it all together; those who helped set up and clear away; those who worked on stalls and sorted everything that was donated; those who provided us all with refreshments; those who worked behind the scenes; and those who came to the fete and enjoyed themselves. A great village event and a really enjoyable church event. Thank you all for your hard work.
