LATEST FETE NEWS

MELBOURN FETE 20 JUNE 2020

The Village Fete returns on Saturday 20 June 2020 and will run from 1 to 5 pm at the village playing fields near the pavilion.

This year will be “Farm at the Fete”, an agricultural theme.

The regular favourites will return. A bar selling both alcoholic and soft drinks, a tea-room with quality sandwiches and cakes.  Top quality food outlets including a barbecue with vegetarian options and hog roast.  Stalls from commercial and volunteers groups.  Lawn mower racing will return and also some farm machinery will be on display to add to the theme.  A small fairground with bouncy castle and other rides will also be on the field.

Activities in the arena include a demonstration of sheep dog skills herding ducks!  Of course we will be also hosting our ever-popular egg throwing competition and also for this year we will be having a “wellie wanging“ (wellington boot throwing) contest too.  The competition tent will also be back with lots of different categories and age groups available, the latest details can be found on the competitions page of this website.

We will also have some live music during part of the afternoon from local groups.

As ever we will be making the day a high value, high quality, low cost event with entry fee and drink costs at very competitive prices.  All profits will go to help charities and other groups within our village.  We have been able to support local groups for the last 15 plus years with total donations of many thousands of pounds.

More details will be available in future magazines and through social media and on line at www.melbournfete.com
