Upton Village Fete

Over 300 people came from far and wide to Upton recreation ground on the first Saturday in September to enjoy all the fun of the fete.

There were Morris men, gymnasts and a fun dog show in which it seemed that just about every dog in Upton got a prize. An impressive array of classic cars glinted in the occasional flashes of sun and for those with an appetite (and this included almost everyone!) there were burgers, pizzas and fabulous home-made cakes plus, of course, gallons of tea.

Then there was the usual group of stalls including books, preserves, a kids’ corner and a tombola of 1001 prizes!

In short, it was a lovely afternoon and many thanks are due to all who helped in so many ways, including putting it all up and taking it down again, looking after the stalls, selling programmes, arranging parking….the list goes on! It was not only a great social occasion but the event raised over £3,300 for the Village Hall and St Mary’s Church.

Keep your diaries free for Saturday, 3rd September 2022 when it all happens again!
