Thursday 7th August 2003



I offer a very personal "Thank you" to everyone who put so much effort into the preparation of our annual Church Fete and to everyone who gave unstintingly on the day, whether in running a sideshow or stall, or helping in any other way. Thank you also for all the various items and financial help given before the day, and to members of our Fete Committee who worked over many months to ensure the success of the day. The final figure raised was £4,481.00, a vital contribution to your parish church's finances for the year.
I am particularly pleased that the weather was so good, enabling many people, locals and visitors, to have such an enjoyable afternoon in The Rectory garden. It was my tenth St. Mary's Fete (Pam and I came incognito in 1994), but my last before I retire. We shall remember well these annual fetes as times when so many village people made their contributions of time, effort and money, and we were hosts to lots of visitors - and there was much fun, too.
Thank you again everyone for making the day such a success.The Fete cannot function without a Committee and new members are essential. If you can
help please contact Peter Colbert, Chairman, 897922 or Margaret Holmes, Secretary. 897046.
Please make a note in your diary for next year's Fete -


John Atkinson.


I would like to endorse what John has said and to express my appreciation to my Fete Committee for their hard work in organising their various responsibilities. A very successful
Peter Colbert, Chairman
