Village Voice by Rosie Warrillow, 7th July

Tomorrow is our Church and Village Fete Day and before all that happens, help is needed in erecting the stalls etc to make the day perfect. If you can help please come to the Rectory Gardens tonight at 6pm and you will be put to work, many thanks in advance! The Fete itself has all the usual exciting stalls, white elephant, coconut shy, pony rides etc and of course some delicious cream teas will be available in the hall all afternoon. The opening will take place at 2pm, a little earlier than usual and we will have a local celebrity to perform the opening ceremony, can you guess who it is yet? Well come along to find out if you were right! The Ukelele Band will be playing during the afternoon and there will be a children’s entertainer too, all to add to the family feel of the event.

St Andrews has a special service this Sunday. An open air songs of praise will be held in the large marquee on the Rectory gardens. A similar service proved very popular last year, it’s an informal service and consists of hymns and songs chosen by the congregation. It will start at the usual time of 11am. Its also Sea Sunday and there will be at least one nautical song to give a real feel of the sea!
