Come to the Community Fete

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.

All set for a traditional village fete

Last-minute preparations are underway for a traditional village fete this Saturday – June 15 – when the parish fete is held at St George’s Church from noon.

Among the attractions will be maypole-dancing by children from Badshot Lea Village School, music from the Sea Cadets, a demonstration by Aldershot Karate Club and plenty of prosecco as well as cakes and cream teas.

Volunteers from Badshot Lea Bloomers and Tice’s Meadow Nature Reserve will be there to give information, alongside John Negus, professional garden journalist and broadcaster, who will be on hand by the plant stall to chat and advise.

There will be lots of stalls, games of skill and chance, a bouncy castle, a barbecue, an auction and a grand raffle with a first prize of £100. Come and join the fun!
