We are very excited to be able to host the Badshot Lea Community Fete on 3rd July at St. George’s from 12-4pm.
We will be having a barbecue, refreshments, including cream teas and a bar, serving beer, gin and Pimms. Due to the restrictions still in place, everyone eating or drinking will need to be seated – so it is lucky we have lots of lawn. It should be a lovely atmosphere on the beautiful summer grass.
Sadly, the restrictions mean that the children of Badshot Lea Village School are unable to perform for us but hopefully this will not stop them coming along and enjoying everything on offer. We are delighted to have partnered with the Tice’s Meadow Birders group, who will have an exhibition, Badshot Bloomers, with their exciting news about a new Community Garden and the Community Association. The Sea Cadets will be present and letting people know what goes on in their organisation and the Working Men’s Club will also be represented. Nibbs Gin are producing flyers which will include interesting discounts.
As a new incentive this year, we have invited small businesses to hire a spot in the car park to sell their wares – so there will artists, wax melts, Usborne Books, bath bombs, hand and face creams, children’s bits and bobs, fudge, calligraphy, craft items, our very own ‘Home Produce’ and a good-as-new toy stall. We also have a children’s ‘Tea Cup’ ride.
Don’t forget our Summer Grand Draw with a first prize of £100; tickets are already on sale. We are also running a bottle tombola and a more general tombola. (Any donations gratefully received).
We are all looking to a great -s afternoon of eating, having fun in the sun and coming together as a community.
Looking forward to seeing you all.
