HOLLINGBOURNE FETE JUNE 2011

Fete day dawned bright and WINDY - the main action of the day seemed to be to stop the Gazebos from blowing away. There were stalls selling flowers, cakes, plants, bags, glass etc, stands for beer, burgers, soft drinks - games to play - Competitions for Dogs (waggiest tail etc), classic cars, Odd methods of transport, and Display tents such as the WI.
Mary & Jim Henderson provided the large Gazabo and display boards, Hilary Lucette the Scapbooks, Members provided the craft work and items for display and Margaret Weaver collated all we had and so that our visitors could see exactly what the WI has been doing for the last 85 years.
Our Unique Pennant has been newly made and will be given to an 2012 Olympic Athlete, under a scheme found on www.quilts4london.org.uk
The Painting done by Miss Fotheringham in 1963 to extol villagers to
join in the effort for the best kept village competition, which
HOLLINGBOURNE THEN WENT ON TO WIN -
Have a look on the small Green when you enter the village -
There is a plaque to commemorate the win on the refuse bin

The races organised by our President Val Williams and her husband Alan
were hotly contended by Children and
Adults
The Tug of War, won in the last two years by the Ladies, was this time won by the men -
a) Take the strain
b) Disaster
Finally a picture from the WI Tent where two young ladies used the Teaching Apron to great effect, swiftly working from 'Once upon a time' to a story containing princes, witches, ghosts, castles, mice and everything else they could get their hands - it was fantastic.
