What is needed

In and Around Big St Mary's

This is a community event which provides pleasure to many people and raises much needed funds for the whole parish, and, as usual, we need your help:-

Raffle Tickets

are available in all three churches, please take some books away and sell them to your friends, neighbours and work colleagues.

Poster Boards

Advertising is vital to the success of the day. If you are able to have a removable sign board for posters (supplied and initially installed), please let Anne Handsley or Diana know, or phone or email Tilly directly.


New this year is a Dog Show as part of the Fete. If you have, or know someone who has, a dog, why not enter the show?


If you know of a local business that would be able to place an advert in the programme, sponsor an event, or give a donation, please contact Tilly for a letter to give to them.


Please leave donations in your churches normal location. Donations can also be left in the flower room at big St Mary’s during the week.

Cakes, Plants and Produce

will be needed. Please get preparing, freezing and nurturing as appropriate.


We will need help on the day for the stalls, and as general helpers. We will also need help on the Thursday evening, Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, so if you can offer help then it will be gratefully received. Signup sheets are available in each church, or offer your services to Anne Handsley, Tilly, Diana or Margaret Dee


Running the Fete incurs a large number of costs. You may feel more able to support it by sponsoring one of the vital costs – St John Ambulance; The Entertainer; Charcoal for the BBQ ...
