Sunshine for Monkton Farleigh fete 2013

The beautiful grounds of Monkton Farleigh Manor and the clear blue skies created a perfect backdrop to St Peter's Church Fete on Saturday 8th June. The wonderful weather drew record crowds who stayed longer than ever, just enjoying the relaxed atmosphere.

The Band of the Salvation Army played throughout the afternoon, only pausing for a cream tea while the children from Churchfields, the Village School, entertained us with their dancing display.

All the usual popular stalls were there, and the attractions of Archery, Steam Train rides, Goats in Harness and the Bouncy Castle all added to the pleasure of the occasion and the success of the whole event.

Sincere thanks go to all those who contributed in so many ways and to those who came to enjoy the wonderful afternoon.
