Welcome to the Kirtlington Fete website
Thank you to everyone who made our fete another memorable day.
This year Kirtlington Fete and Childrens' Fun Run was on Saturday 25th June 2016
An exciting new attraction for us in 2016 was Crocodiles of the World.
From their new base near Brize Norton, they brought some of their crocodiles and other animals to us in Kirtlington.
The fete also featured Dance 10 and Karate demonstrations.
Our primary objective at the annual village fete is for villagers and visitors to have a fun day, but whilst doing so, we 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 next year, please drop the Village Fete Committee an email with your request by the end of May 2016.
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. This year we're re-thinking our Photo Competition, and as usual, we are hoping to publish the winning entry in the next edition of the Kirtlington Village News, and online here of course.
Also at the fete, Brian from Ambiente Photography will be doing a photo box set-up for some fun photo opportunities and themed pictures of the day.
The fete was opened this year by award-winning TV presenter, journalist and Kirtlington resident Louise Goodman this year. She has over 20 years of media and motor-racing experience. Her childhood interest in Formula One was first sparked by the exploits of James Hunt, and she has gone on to build a very successful career in this male-dominated and highly competitive arena.

Despite having many talents, the committee cannot do everything in the run up to the 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.
