Semley Fete 2019

semley fete logo

Despite the wind and a distant threat of rain, Semley's Annual Village Fete was once again a great success. The Bell Street Jazz Band set the tone with their brilliant and uplifting playing entertaining those enjoying tea and cake or Pimms as well as those busy bargain hunting or taking part in the many games on offer. A group of children from Semley School sang during the band's break and it was wonderful to see their happy faces enjoying their performance before they ran off again to have more fun. The attractions included face painting, donkey rides, crockery smashing and the ever-popular coconut shy. There were long queues for the bottle stall and this year some brave folk even volunteered to have sponges thrown at them while they were in the stocks. Two other new attractions, the Pop-Up Boutique, which stocked nearly new clothes, and the Pimms' tent were both a huge success and hopefully will become part of the Semley Fete traditions. Everywhere you looked there were smiling faces. It is a wonderful day when the community comes together to raise money for our village.

The Semley Fete Committee would like to thank everyone who worked so hard putting it together. Those who put up and take down the tents, everyone who comes along on the day, every plant lovingly planted to be sold and every cake baked help make it a perfect summer's day. The fete raised £5,400 which will be used to continue to support local causes. Many thanks.
