Village fete date
Aston Abbotts Village Fete hopes to be under way on Saturday, 24 July, complete with a dog show, stalls, entertainment and many attractions.
Barring another late lockdown, this year’s event will be opened by MP Greg Smith at 1pm. Visitors will have the chance to enjoy a number of attractions, including:
- Fun dog show (in the grounds of the adjacent church)
- Stalls for bric-a-brac, books, food, cakes and other interesting goods
- Treasure hunt
- The Great Horwood Silver Band
- Aldbury Morris Men (pictured)
- Vintage tractors on display
- There will also be classic car rides in a 1928 Sunbeam.
Fish and chips will be available and Pimm’s and ice cream will be served. Tea will be served in the village hall and a flower festival goes on show in the church.
All funds raised will go towards local good causes and organisers are aiming for a record-breaking year.
As the event will take part just after the end of official COVID-19 regulations, hand sanitiser will be available on each stall and social distancing is encouraged.
The fete will run from 1pm-4pm. Free parking is available on the recreation ground and Blue Badge parking will be provided next to the green.
