Plans are all in place for this year's Bishopstone Summer Fete on the 5th of August. This traditional day takes place on the village green and Parish Hall in Bishopstone Village (BN25 2UD).

The Pop-Up Singers will start the proceedings at 12 noon with a range of popular songs and the Fete runs through to 4.00pm. There will be on-going refreshments including sizzling bacon rolls, home made cakes, beer tent and ice cream. There will also be a wide range of exciting craft stalls and the good old favourites including books, plants, linens, gifts, cakes and preserves, bottle tombola, linens and bric a brac and of course the great raffle.

For younger visitors there is a toy stall and tombola, games, face painting and Punch and Judy shows at 1.00pm and 3.00pm. Portraits drawn on the spot will be available as a lasting souvenir!

Once again there will be the fun Dog Show - registration at 1.00pm- show at 2.00pm.

Prior to the Fete donations of books, bric-a-brac, (not electrical goods or large heavy articles), toys and games, plants, linens, craft materials and unwanted gifts are welcome.

The proceeds are for the on-going maintenance of the much loved ancient parish church of St. Andrew in Bishopstone, which will be open to all to enjoy the unique atmosphere and listen to organ music.
