Poynings Village Fete

THANK YOU to everyone from the village and beyond who helped to make the garden fete last Saturday such a happy event.

We raised about £1800 for the church – a terrific result which will help to pay the bills.

But the main thing was that it seemed to be a relaxed afternoon, with lots of people – especially children – having fun.

We are really grateful to all who contributed in any way: selling, buying, golfing, baking, singing, netballing, maypole dancing, puppet showing, drinking, serving or eating cream teas, putting up tents and chairs, smacking the rat, car parking, selling and buying raffle tickets – or just laughing and chatting! A lovely sunny afternoon. A big thank you to all involved.
