It’s back – after four years’ absence. The popular South Stoke Church Fete returns on Saturday 2 July from 2-5pm.
I am told the fete is being held again at Brantwood in South Stoke Lane, BA2 7DN. There will be traditional sideshows including coconut shy and skittles; attractive stalls selling bric-a-brac, books, cakes and jams, textiles and jewellery; as well as a wildlife trail, children’s activities, cream teas and a bar. The City of Bath Brass Band and Uke Cannot Be Serious will entertain the crowds.
The fete is in aid of St James Church in South Stoke and Bath City Farm. Entrance is £1 with under 14s going free.
Liz Brooks, one of the fete organisers said: “We are so pleased to be able to hold the South Stoke Fete again, as it has been much missed over the past four years. We are delighted that so many people want to take part: around 100 volunteers are helping put up tents, running stalls and sideshows, and clearing up afterwards.
It is a real team effort. All we need now is good weather, and lots of visitors to come flocking through the gates. We hope to raise significant funds for both our worthwhile charities whilst offering fun for all the family.”
