FUN AND GAMES AT ST ANDREW'S SUMMER FETE
August 9 2014.
Last Saturday, August the 2nd, saw the annual festivities of the St. Andrew’s Summer Fete, held next to the church on “The Egg”, or village green, in Bishopstone. The weather was kind and the rain held off so that the crowds of people that flocked to this fete could thoroughly enjoy themselves.
Opened by the mayor of Seaford, Mark Brown, the fete contained a mix of games like Hoopla and Snakes and Ladders, together with a variety of stalls offering anything from books and plants to linen and children’s toys. The fete was also home to Punch and Judy for one afternoon only.
For many, one of the highlights of the day was the dog’s show, where dog owners had the opportunity to show how good looking or clever their dog was.
For those needing refreshment, there were drinks, cakes and snacks available in the parish hall, served by willing volunteers.
The church was also open for those wanting moments of quiet or to explore this very beautiful building, with music being supplied by various organists.
The fete raised around £3,100; this to be used in the maintaining and repairing of the church.
