By now readers of Tarvinonline will be aware that the Tarvin Village Fete is this Saturday, 10 June, on the King George V Playing Field. It is great that the Fete is now firmly re-established in the village calendar.
As you travel through the village you will have noticed the road closure signs for Saturday, 10 June, for certain roads within the village. This is of course to give us all advance notice of the Parade of the Fete King and Queen which will start from the bottom of Lower High Street, via the High Street, Hockenhull Lane, Crossfields, Meadow Close to the King George V Playing Field. The parade will start at 11.30 am but the roads along the route will be closed from 11.00 am reopening at 12.30 pm.
Jo Richards has informed us that the Brass Band has been booked, the Town Crier will head the Parade followed by the Brownies, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts in their uniforms. Then of course there will be the Tarvin Fete King and Queen – Adam Berry and Lily Wright – who will be walking under a decorated canopy. The King and Queen will be followed by their retinue – the girls will each be wearing a pearl headband and the boys will be looking very smart with their silver bow ties.
One thing that has not been mentioned to date is the Dog Show which is back again this year by popular demand. There are posters about this around the village but to remind you the Dog Show has three categories:
The most obedient dog;
The dog with the waggiest tail;
The dog who looks most like its owner.
The Dog Show will take place at 2.30 pm on the King George V Playing Field.
