Fete 3

The Tarvin Village Fete is almost upon us and all the elements are slowly but surely coming together. As well as parades and stalls, attractions and games, a wide range of eating and drinking options will be available to help the afternoon pass in a relaxed and mellow fashion.

A supply of excellent ale is a key ingredient and again this year we are delighted to be offering Uley Bitter from the Uley Brewery in Gloucestershire. By a lucky piece of serendipity, the Head Brewer there just happens to be the brother of the Community Centre Treasurer! As well as this excellent brew, there will be a range of wines, ciders and soft drinks available.

A Fete without a good cup of tea would be unthinkable and for this, and for the cakes and scones that go with it, we look to the hard work and generosity of the Tarvin Methodist Church. Working for the afternoon in the Community Centre cramped kitchen is probably as near to conditions banned by the Geneva Convention as you are likely to get in peacetime, so their efforts are much appreciated. Refreshments will be served in the Hall this year, so there will be more space and time to relax and chat. Achieving more space in the kitchen is one of the things we are working so hard to achieve.

Fetes can be hungry work, but there is no need to have lunch beforehand. The Community Centre will be serving a range of hamburgers and hotdogs with all the accompaniments to meet the needs of the most discerning — and hungry customer. This was a most popular attraction last year, but nearly all of the profits went to the commercial provider. This year you can munch in the confidence that every calorie is going to a good cause!

No Fete would be complete without ice cream and this will be provided from a 'retro' ice cream van by a small company called Hyacinth. Candy floss and rock novelties will be for sale as part of the fairground attraction.

A number of stalls will be selling produce to take home. St Andrews will be selling a cornucopia of homemade cakes and The Hollies Farm Shop will have a stall selling some of their wonderful pies and sausage rolls.

So when you come along on Saturday 27th June, eat heartily, drink responsibly, spend freely and have a great time.
