Sun Shines on the Littlehempston Fete

Over 900 people including visitors, volunteers and stall holders enjoyed a sunny day at Littlehempston Fete, which proved one of the most successful fetes ever. Keys to the success of this traditional village fete were loads of things to keep the kids amused while parents relaxed in the free deckchairs, enjoying high quality BBQ food and excellent local ales – and lashings of Pimms provided at the Tally Ho Pop Up bar.

Music was provided by Chez la Vie followed by Waves from Broadhempston. New attractions this year were Emma and her donkeys, the racing ferrets, and Ash Levin in the Story Telling Tent.

Fete Team rep Bee West said, “The fete was a real feat of community coming together. Everyone can be proud of their amazing achievement in providing such a wonderful day of fun. Money raised by the fete will go towards supporting new activities in the parish, the beautiful church, the Community Space, which acts as the village hall, Berry Pomeroy School and Rowcroft Hospice.” A donation also went to the Dartmoor Beast Explorer Scouts who did sterling work, manning the car park and packing up the next day. Thanks to the Fete Team for all their hard work. Early estimates suggest around £4,000 had been raised. More photos will be posted on the Gallery soon – honest!
