The Church Fete on 2nd July was a great success. The weather was perfect and it was good to see so many people enjoying themselves. Thank you to all who came along.
The profit, after expenses, came to £5413. This is the church’s major fund-raising event of the year and makes a vital contribution to the running costs of the church.
We are extremely grateful to everyone who made the fete possible, and in particular:
Fiona and Gavin McAlpine for their generosity and support which ensured a fabulous day.
Clive Tompkins (Cherwell Graphics Ltd) for printing all the banners, signs, leaflets, raffle tickets etc.
Charles & Caroline Landless for storing the fete equipment for us
David and Margaret Goundrey for giving up their garage space.
and the following companies for their support in donating Raffle Prizes:
The White Horse (as well as organising the barbecue food)
Barrett & Coe Photography
Hinksey Heights Golf Club
Richard Taylor, Grange Farm Beef, Swalcliffe
Eagles of Deddington
Johnson’s of Deddington
Everyone who donated anything to the fete.
All the stallholders for their preparation work beforehand and everyone who set up/cleared away on the day.
