Fun for all as popular village fete returns


Plans are well underway for one of the main events in the Alderley Edge social calendar.

The Alderley Edge Village Fete is being held at the Cricket Club on Sunday 1st July from 1pm onwards.

Attractions on the day will include artisan produce stalls, vintage cars, a falconry display, chainsaw sculpture, a Formula 1 Simulator and laser clay pigeon shooting. There will also be a WFA football penalty shootout, fire engine and fair ground rides. Refreshments will include teas and cakes served by the WI, a Pimms stall, barbecue and bar.

This year money is being raised for Francis House Children's Hospice. As at previous events there will be local schools performing on stage, there will also be a school painting competition as part of the Francis House fund raising and a Dog Show will be held during the day.

Organiser Emma Bolton, of the Lavender Tree said "We are now in our 4th year of this great community event and this year we are raising funds for Francis House Children's Hospice. The hospice are going to be organising lots of traditional games and a mini Olympics for all of the children to enjoy.

"We have chosen the hospice as our charity for this years event as is provides such amazing care and support for all of the children and their families.

"There will be something for everyone to enjoy for a great family day out..."
