Fête accomplished

It was another record-breaking year for the Burgh fête which raised £3,334.62 – £259.52 more than last year.

Jeremy Hickling said: “We have made an amazing total. The fête is the primary event of the village that the majority of the residents are involved in, and the community spirit within the village is what makes Burgh special. The success of the fête is evidence of this.

“On behalf of the Reading Room and St Mary’s Church I would like to thank everybody for their help and support, and, hopefully, together, we will have another successful fête next year.”

All proceeds will be shared equally between St Mary’s Church and the Reading Room.

Hundreds of people from far and wide came to the fete in the church grounds of St Mary’s on Saturday (3 August) to enjoy a traditional evening of family fun and games.

Unsurprisingly, the BBQ, bar and raffle raised the most money but the return of the duck race and the new gin tent and diving ducks stalls helped boost this year’s funds.
