The sun made its debut appearance last Saturday (21st July) as people enjoyed all the traditional fun of the fair at Signature Moorlands Lodge Inaugural Summer Fete, in support of Alzheimer’s Society.
The fete was opened in style by local town crier Christian Ashdown, who made sure everybody heard about it in a display that was enjoyed by all the generations, including grandparents, parents, grand-children and great-great grandchildren who were keen to capture the moment on film.
As the sun beamed down, guests made the most of the fete’s activities, which included a falconry display - giving children the chance to hold rare birds of prey - a fire engine from our local Fire Station and a range of traditional funfair games, including Hook the Duck and Splat the Rat.
While children enjoyed candy floss and ice cream, the adults sipped Pimm’s and browsed the stalls, all run by businesses from the local community, including Fruity Foods, Rainbow Rooms, the cookie bar and Grayshott’s Magical rooms.
Creenagh Williamson, General Manager of Signature Moorlands Lodge, was delighted that the home’s first summer fete was a success. ‘We really involved everybody in this event and interest spanned four generations,’ she said. ‘This was a wonderful event for our first year and we plan to build on this success in the future.’
