Chedburgh shows it can enjoy a great fete
The annual village fete in Chedburgh has raised £3,200 for local organisations.
Staged in the grounds of the Erskine Centre the event was opened by guest ‘Snow Queen’ Melanie Laliberte who toured the field in a vintage car and met and signed autographs for local children.
The day escaped downpours affecting other areas nearby and featured a dog show, line dancing, craft stalls and a bouncy castle plus a host of different stalls.
There was also a display of 30 vintage and classic cars.
Jackie Chester, one of the organisers, said: “ It’s been a great community event and got people out meeting other people.”
The money will be donated to Little Tea Pots pre school and Little Tea Cups nursery, the gardening club, brownies, church, village hall and WI.
