Tarvin Village Fete
Warm sunny days might still seem a long way off but plans are well under way for our 2016 Village Fete on June 18th and this year we 're planning to make it bigger and better than ever
The all important Fete King and Queen, together with their retinue are being selected on Tuesday, February 9th at Tarvin Primary School so don't forget to return your reply slip on your invitation letter. If you haven't received a letter and would like one, please contact Jo at firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 01829 741474. The Town Crier will be coming back to lead the procession and the marching band has been booked.
New attractions we've added this year include Crazy Golf and a wellie throwing competition. There will be a Pimms tent on the playing field to refresh you while you watch the entertainment as well as the bar in the Community Centre. The stalls you all enjoyed last year will be back as well as a few new ones.
We're very excited and we can't wait for June 18th. In the meantime, you can follow us on Facebook where you'll find the lovely pictures from previous years to remind you what a great day this is for our village.
