Church Summer Fête

Thank you so much to everyone who supported us at the St Mabyn Church Summer Fête on Saturday 16th June. Despite threatening weather, the new fete committee held their nerve and carried on!
The fete was opened by the Reverend David Seymour, followed by the joyful sounds of Les Accordionaires. The St Mabyn School children delighted the crowds with their maypole dancing, and even mums and dads had a go without getting too tangled! Children were in turn entertained by Jules, a local ventriloquist. All the usual stalls proved as popular as ever, and we were also joined by the St Mabyn Scout Group, Pengelly Ice Creams, and local artist Jill Gompertz. Master of Ceremonies Tony Dickinson did a sterling job as always, keeping the fete flowing with precision and injecting a lot of fun!
The fete would never be the same without the concluding children’s races and the Tug-o-War, won by the girls, I believe!
We realise that the fete is always such a success thanks to the tremendous help and donations of goods, freely given, by both individuals and groups from the village and elsewhere. We really hope that everyone had a great afternoon and thank you all again for attending. The date for next year is Saturday, June 15th, 2019
