Village Tea Party

Saturday, 5th September was to have been the date of the Village Fete but current circumstances mean we can’t hold this in its traditional format. However, the government’s restrictions do allow certain events to take place and many people long for something to look forward to in a summer when so much has been cancelled. So instead of the fete, we are planning a grand village tea party on 5th September, open to Upton residents and their invited guests.
Reserved tables will be set up outside the village hall, one per family or group, and delicious sandwiches, cakes and tea will be served up to all. There will be a small number of stalls (preserves, raffle, tombola etc) and, with music playing the scene will be set for a jolly afternoon. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, we will erect the village marquee to provide shelter.
We are likely to be restricted to 30 people at a time so if there’s enough interest we will arrange a couple of sittings. Pre-booking will be essential so we can cater for the right numbers. We are of course very aware of social distancing and other safety measures which will be carefully observed.
The cost will be £10 per head, with children at half price. Tickets must be booked through Jessie (851206), Frankie (851404), Gloria (850683) or Paul (851251). Don’t forget that they must be booked in advance and that numbers are limited!
