Despite an extraordinary year of rain and drought last year, the number and standard of entries was excellent.
The challenge for everyone this year is to do even better. Within the show schedule there are many categories just asking for your entries, so what’s stopping you?
This year St Denys Church is celebrating 800 years since its founding, which will be reflected in some of the events at the fete, as will the re-enactment group of the parachute regiment who were stationed at the end of Shady Lane 75 years ago. Many of your favourite acts from last year will be with us again including the Morris Dancers, who were superb.
I look forward to meeting you again this year at the fete and seeing what wonderful exhibits you enter into the show.
