Our traditional annual fete took place on Saturday 7th September and yet again was a huge success. A great crowd of local people came to enjoy the always popular dog show, the children's fancy dress competition, the Punch and Judy show, and having a go at the coconut shies or taking part in sack races. There were lots of stalls around the circle, including including the Friends-run ones selling books and plants. The Friends-run Pimms, wine and beer marquee and tea and cakes tent did a roaring trade as did the various other food stands.

The Committee would like to thank: The Neighbourhood Vet team for organising the dog show with their usual efficiency and sense of fun: all the local businesses and residents who supported us by donating cakes, books etc; and all those who gave up their time to help on the day. The fete takes a huge amount of organising and without all the help we get, it simply wouldn’t be possible.

As always, the money made by the fete will go towards new projects that benefit the Park and Common and on the maintenance of the Community Wildlife Garden.
