Last Saturday the sun shone on Henbury Millennium Green wiping out all memories of last year's downpour and a happy crowd of all ages enjoyed a REAL SUMMER FETE this year. We were delighted to welcome David Rutley MP to open the show and there were so many things to see and do for all ages. Old favourites like the Tombola and Raffle, books and toys , plant stall, archery and plate smashing. Home produce and refreshments with COOL drinks this year
and Granelli 's ice cream to match the hot day.
Maypole dancing by Whirley Primary School was as delightful as ever and much enjoyed. And things more recently introduced introduced such as balloons in the car, bottles in the barrow ,ferret racing and Splat the Rat were well supported.
The organisers of the Fete , Henbury Events Committee , thanks you all for spending the afternoon with us and especially thanks to all the volunteers who gave their time to set up the fete, run all the games and stalls and clear everything up afterwards. Without you it just wouldn't happen.
It was a great afternoon and all the money raised is donated to Henbury village organisations .
We look forward to seeing you at the Fete next summer and why not join us at our spring and autumn events in the Church Hall. The next one is BINGO on Friday November 17th. Keep an eye on www.henbury.org for details.
