Wet but not a Washout

All agreed that despite the rain, Littlehempston Fete provided enough Midsummer Madness to keep everyone of all ages amused. Most of the parish turned out to man the stalls and side shows, the Mad Obstacle course and Pony Rides proved a big hit with the younger ones and Elfic the Jester had everybody rolling amongst the hay bales. The Mad Hatters Bar and delicious Hog Roast from the BBQ did a brisk trade, whilst Hogwash played music that everybody could jig to and keep warm. The Maypole Team from Berry Pomeroy School were superb.

Many thanks to everybody who pitched in and worked so hard to make this event a success. A special thanks to Donna and Phil from the Pig & Whistle who helped enormously with providing advice and support for the Mad Hatter Bar and also lent us the hog roast machine, which turned out to be a big success.

Provisional figures show that around £2,100 was raised, which will go towards supporting Rowcroft Hospice, Berry Pomeroy School and Littlehempston Church and Community Space. More pictures in the gallery.
