Message from the Committee – March 2018

We can’t believe how the year is moving on – despite the weather - arrangements are in hand for a splendid day out and as we are rapidly moving towards our biennial event we would love to hear from anyone who is willing to give up a few hours to man a stall for the Fete funds or help on the Day before or on the day itself in some capacity.

There are lots of options and your committee would welcome hearing from anyone, especially if you are new to the Parish and would enjoy being part of a lively and fun day. We would also like to know of anyone who has a gazebo or tent that they are willing to lend us on the day to help protect fete stallholders on the field.

Please look on the Parish website: https://parish.middevon.gov.uk/coldridge for updates and a taste of this great fund raising day.

If you can help, just message us (details here) and we will be in touch. Thank you.

Please make an effort to come along to find out about all that will be happening here at the end of June and, maybe, how you can help to make it an even bigger success than before!  Thanks Marylin.
