A VILLAGE fete beset by poor weather on Saturday has raised £930 for village amenities.
Despite almost constant rain there was a good turnout and people enjoyed displays of martial arts, some military vehicles, a children’s fancy dress competition and some welly throwing and crockery smashing during a break in the clouds.
Several events were cancelled because of the weather but many were able to continue inside the village hall. Military vehicles from the Suffolk Military Vehicles Trust were one show as well as a Toyota MR2 taken along by Steve Lumley.
Cllr Christopher Spicer, St Edmundsbury Mayor, opened the fete and presented fancy dress prize winner Felicity Ellis, seven, with her prize.
There was also attendance by brownies, guides and scouts, Bury ATC and a recruitment trailer from the Royal Anglians.
Money will be shared between Risby Pre-school and village amenities.
