The skies looked ominous when the fete opened but it brightened up as the afternoon wore on and nothing dampened the spirits of those who attended. It proved to be a fantastic (and warm) afternoon hugely enjoyed by the kids and grown-ups alike, even if “Wally” did get a little wetter than he expected – courtesy of those fantastic blokes from Sawtry’s Fire Service! Special thanks to the Sawtry Steppers who put on a great Line Dancing display and also to Becky for organising the ever popular Companion Dog Show. Thanks to your generosity and support the Fete raised £1,504.70 which will be shared between St Nicholas’ Church and Glatton Village Hall. Thanks to everyone who came along and made it the fantastic afternoon it was!

From Terry Brignall: I would like to offer a huge thanks to all who contributed to the success of this year’s village Fete & Fun day, whether you helped organize, set up, clear up, manned stalls or games, made cakes or cooked burgers or served coffee/tea/Pimms/beer, etc. or provided cakes or produce or sponsored prizes. The day would not have been the success it was without the brilliant team effort that took place last Saturday. A very special thanks to John & Sue Williams for providing the sausages & prize ham free of charge and also to Ian & Lynn Buckingham for use of their Bouncy Castle and of course to Helen & Jane (for organisation and accounting). Thanks also to the Sawtry Fire Service for being such good sports and to the Sawtry Steppers for a great line dancing demo; not forgetting Becky for a brilliant dog show. The Fete raised a total of £1,504.70 of which £902.82 went to St Nicholas church and £601.88 went to Glatton Village Hall (as per the agreed 60/40% split).
