Following our campaign in 2022 to attract energetic new members to the Melbourn Fete Committee, we are now in the happy position to plan our own event – the Melbourn Family Fun Day – in addition to supporting other village events through the loan of equipment and human resources including: Melbourn Open Gardens; The Hub’s Coronation celebrations; Melbourn Primary School’s Summer Fayre and Firework Display; and Turn on to Christmas in partnership with the Hub.


 After a 5 year break we are planning a summer event this June. It will be reduced in size compared to previous fetes, in fact this year we are calling it a Family Fun Day. We have just had our first meeting so details are still to be confirmed but the plan is to run the event on the playing fields near the village pavilion from 1 to 5pm on Saturday 24 June. There will be bouncy castles, soft play areas and other children’s activities. We hope to have stalls from local groups and commercial vendors. We are also planning on running some creative competitions such as baking. There will be classic and vintage vehicles and motorbikes on display. If you have a vehicle or motorbike you would like to show please contact us. We will have an arena for entertainment and of course this is where the popular egg throwing competition will take place. There will also be a tug of war contest. The pavilion will have tea, coffee and cakes for sale. There will be a bar and other food available elsewhere. We hope we will be able to put on a modest but fun event for the village so please put the day in your calendar. As always, we are happy to hear from volunteers who can help us on the day. More details will be posted on our website and Facebook page. You can contact us through our website or through e mail:  or on our Facebook page
