Fete and Pet Show Cancelled

Following the successful Jubilee Gala, the plan was to hold the 2022 Village Fete and Pet Show over the August Bank Holiday weekend, having moved it to accommodate the Big Jubilee Lunch in June.
The Gala Committee met recently and after discussion we agreed that we would NOT go ahead with the Pet Show and Fete this year.

Every society reported difficulty in getting enough helpers, and it was generally felt that attendance could be way down on normal years due to “event fatigue”, the feeling that we’ve had the Gala, (Jubilee celebrations) and other calls on people’s time over the Bank Holiday. It was also recognised that the Raffle would not be viable given the lack of “big” events over the weekend and the difficulty in raising awareness for just a fete.

A motion was proposed to postpone till late May BH 2023 by Ian Lawson, seconded by Ian Coupe, and passed unanimously.
