Barbecue sells out as village fete enjoys biggest ever crowd

MORE than 800 people flocked to Whitchurch Hill fete on the village green on Saturday.

MORE than 800 people flocked to Whitchurch Hill fete on the village green on Saturday.

The event was opened by the 25-piece Maidenhead Concert Band and traditional entertainment included a Punch and Judy show, children’s races, fairground stalls, ferret racing and a dog show.

A barbecue proved so popular that it sold out of food.

George Robertson, who has organised the fete for 10 years, said: “I don’t think we’ve ever had a bigger crowd — it was really full and the atmosphere was buzzing.

“I suppose people were very keen to get out and enjoy the sunshine after such a cold start to the year.”

The fete made £1,400, which will be donated to various local causes including a plaque at the village well in memory of Brian Godley, a member of the fete committee who died in 2010.
