Bury Fete report

Judith Daykin, Chair of the Bury & West Burton Volunteers, reports on last Saturday’s fete…

Bury’s well known fete was held on Saturday 29th to raise funds for the Arun Churches (St Johns, St Giles, St Botolphs and St Nicholas). It was very fortunate that it was a lovely sunny day and attendance far surpassed any expectations. Beautiful music was provided by Petworth Band and it was great to see so many children and adults thoroughly enjoying a circus skills workshop, games, raffle, tombola, face painting etc. Others were able to browse the plants, books, cakes, clothes in The Boutique, bric-a-brac, including some special collectible items and lovely fabrics, or just sit and enjoy the barbecue or tea and cakes whilst admiring the wonderful surroundings of Dorset House School. Thank you to the school for allowing us to hold it in their gardens and barn once again. So many helpers worked extremely hard to create a wonderful atmosphere and community spirit and bring the villagers together for a memorable day. Grateful thanks go to all the volunteers who worked on this and all those who joined the fun.
