Wootton Fitzpaine will see its first fete in almost 10 years. The fete will take place on Monday, May 26, at 1.30pm and will be opened by Lord Bradbury. The fete will be held in both the Village Hall and on the Playing Field.

There will be fun for all ages; including a display by The Karizma Majorettes, who will be showing off their new outfits for the first time this year, and a fancy dress parade for both adults and children, at 2.30pm.

The dog show has, unfortunately, been cancelled but, in its place, there will be horse racing with a difference, followed by family games. There will also be a decorative cake competition for both adults and children. All cakes need to be at the village hall by 11am on the day of the fete.

Other events will include a spinning wheel demonstration, Whoops a Daisy paint a pot, iron works, a card stall, lace making and, weather permitting, there will be a Hot Air Balloon. In addition there will be the usual fete favourites: cream teas, cake stall, plant stall, bash the rat, face painting, skittle ally, and candle rolling.

The Wotton Club will open at around 4pm, along with a BBQ. There will be a tug O' war competition at around 4.15pm (five people per team).

The evening will finish with live music from local band, The Vinyl Monkeys, which will start at 7pm. All proceeds from the day will go to local charities and organisations.
