A huge thank you to Maggs Chamberlain & Elspeth Mongomery who acted as joint Chairs of the Committee, the members of the Fete Committee, their other halves and all those who gave up their time to help put up putting up and taking down, clearing up etc., etc., over the bank holiday weekend - you know who you are and we couldn’t have done it without you!
