Village Fête

Buckland Newton Village Fete takes place each year on August Bank Holiday Monday

Buckland Newton Community Website
in the heart of rural Dorset

August 26th 2019, 1.00pm – 4.30pm at The Gaggle of Geese - Supporting our village!

Your Help Is Needed Please ……..

Each year Buckland Newton Village Fete raises, quite literally, thousands of pounds for the community with

groups such as the school, youth club, village hall, lunch club, gardening group, etc all benefitting.

This year it has been decided to hold the Fete again at the Gaggle of Geese, to support the pub and to explore the benefits that a new venue might provide (the Fete has previously been held at several locations around the village). But we need your help! Could you volunteer your time to:  Attend Committee meetings (1.5 hours, once a month) and be our Treasurer or our Publicity person?  Help run a stall on the day, eg—Chuck a Chicken, the Bottle Tombola, the Skittle Alley?  Do you have a small business and would like your own stall for a flat rate fee of £20?  Run the Dog Show? And whilst the Gaggle of Geese has a car park, which meets the day-to-day needs of the pub, the Committee is looking for a field in the vicinity around the pub that could be used to provide additional parking for the Fete. It is the Committee’s hope that Buckland Newton Community will once again rally round and support the Fete.  If you can help, please contact: Kate Parish on either 01300 345497 or email her at parishkate0@googlemail.com  

Fete Extra…

Why not have some good fun this August?  Join in the crazy mid August, pre-fete, ‘Scarecrow Happening’ to help publicise this year’s fete. You can help make it another great success by having a go at some creative scarecrow making.  They will be popping up all over place!  All styles and designs welcome.
