Organisers are promising visitors an experience that is out of this world at Winterslow Village Fete on Saturday, June 15.
The traditional fete and community event has a space theme with rocket ships, astronauts and aliens in a procession from the village hall to Winterslow Recreation ground, opposite Winterslow School. School children and local groups have created their own interstellar floats travelling through the village accompanied by tractors and classic cars.
The fete features games, community stalls, BBQ and licensed bar, and a tug-of-war competition between super-competitive teams and groups.
The fete raises money for local organisations and societies, including the school and pre-school.
Food, drink and ice creams for the fete have been donated by Ash and the team at the village pub, The Lord Nelson.
Entertainment on the day includes inflatable obstacle courses, penalty shoot-out competitions, obstacle races and a range of stalls. A raffle has some special donated prizes.
Highlight of the event could be the costume choices of the village preschool and school children.
Village resident and one of the event organisers, Matt Dann, said: “We hope lots of people from far and wide come along to see Winterslow at its very best. It promises to be a fun-packed day with something for the whole family, and we encourage visitors to get into the party spirit with an interplanetary costume of their own. Our thanks to all who helped organise the event, donated prizes, and the team at The Lord Nelson for their generous support.”
Winterslow Village Fete procession starts at 1.30pm and activities carry on into the evening with live music and a BBQ at the Lord Nelson pub, near the recreation ground.
