Fun in the rain at Whitchurch Hill fete
Published 29/05/14



WET weather failed to dampen the spirits of visitors to Whitchurch Hill fete on Saturday.

Attractions included ferret racing, a dog show, coconut shy, Punch and Judy show and fairground rides for children.

There was also a barbecue, bar, bottle tombola and stalls selling a range of items including cakes, books, plants and cards.

Maidenhead Concert Band performed throughout the day.

Noel Greenaway, from Stoke Row, brought along his replica vintage stream tractor. Built in the 1980s, it is a quarter of the size of the 1904 original.

John Gray, treasurer of the fete committee, said he had been concerned about the impact of the poor weather and the closure of Whitchurch toll bridge but the event went well.

“Financially, it looks to have been extremely well supported,” he said. “The total looks to be not far short of what we took last year, which was one of our biggest years ever. This as a village community event and there’s always a demand for it. People particularly like the dog show.”

The proceeds will be donated to local charities.
