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.
