Welcome to the Kirtlington Fete website

 

Kirtlington Fete this year was on Saturday 24th June.

Thank you to everyone who came and took part for making it another memorable occasion.

And here's a date for next year's diaries - The annual village fete will be held on Saturday 30th June 2018

 

The main attraction this year was a 30 foot high climbing wall, and a mountain bikes obstacle course, building on the success of previous attractions such as Crocodiles of the World.

 

 

Other attractions this year included Laser Tag, Dance 10,  the Dog Show (courtesy of the Up N Over Dog Training Club at Heyford Park), the Bletchington Silver Band, and Uncle Wiggy.

Our fete this year was opened by our new Rector, The Rev'd Gareth Miller, pictured below.

Gareth moved here in February this year, having served previously in the Blenheim Benefice.  Born near Richmond, Surrey, he has lived in most parts of the country -  north-east, south-west, east and middle!  He loves living here and already feels very much at home in the village.  He enjoys travel, music, reading and family history. Gareth has five adult children who live more or less along a line from Edinburgh to Johannesburg!
 

 

Our main aim at the annual village fete is for villagers and visitors to have a fun day out,, but we also hope to raise lots of money that we can then distribute amongst our village organisations.  If your organisation or club could do with a boost to its funds this year, please drop the Village Fete Committee an email with your request by the end of May.

 

Every year we rely on the generosity of villagers and local businesses for contributions to the Grand Prize Draw and the Silent Auction lots, which are our biggest money earners.  Anyone with donations or suggestions of who we may approach, please don’t hesitate to contact us. 

 

The number of stalls in the hall and on the field offering a variety of shopping and entertainment experiences grows each year, and if you would like to hire a space, Liz would love to hear from you.

Volunteers

Despite having many talents, the committee cannot do everything in the run up to the annual fete or on the day itself. 
We need lots of volunteers, if only for an hour or so, for example, to sell programmes, marshall the car park or register runners, etc.
If you can spare us some time, please speak to any of the committee members to register your support, or register on the Registration page and tell us in the message box what you would like to help with.

 

Committee Members

Lorna Straker, Barbara Kemp, Jan Sprake, Liz Pinker, Tony Brett, Larry Blackwell, Janet Noonan, Nick Heptonstall and David Mealins.
