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
  • Tombola
  • Treasure hunt
  • Skittles
  • The Great Horwood Silver Band
  • Aldbury Morris Men (pictured)
  • Vintage tractors on display
  • Raffle
  • 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.
