Little Marlow Village Fete on Bank Holiday Monday
The Residents of Little Marlow have held a Village Fete on August Bank Holiday Monday for well over 30 years. The Fete is run by the Little Marlow Amenities Committee which is elected at an annual public meeting to which all villagers are invited.
The Little Marlow Village Fete will again be held on August Bank Holiday Monday, 25 August, from 2pm – 5pm on the Little Marlow Recreation Ground (off Church Road). We will have all the usual stalls, activities and refreshments, including afternoon tea/coffee in the Pavilion. This year the music will be provided by Acoustic Jass, a local jazz quartet.
All the proceeds from the Fete will go towards local good causes as well as to projects and activities which benefit the residents of Little Marlow. We therefore hope that we can count on your support. There are lots of ways you can help including:
Providing Prizes for the Tombola eg chocolates, bottles, toiletries, gadgets, unwanted presents. We will take anything provided it is new. Items need to be ticketed ahead of the day so please drop them off at April Lodge, Fern Lane, Little Marlow, SL7 3SF or Saltings House, Pound Lane, Little Marlow, SL7 3RZ before Sunday 24th August or contact Martin Braint on 07967 217182.
Donating Goods for the bric-a-brac This is your chance to have a clear out and to donate your unwanted goods to the bric-a-brac stall. Please bring them to the Recreation Ground on 25 August. It would be really helpful to have them before 12 noon.
Supplying Books for the Book stall Will you really read those old books again? If not, donate them to our book stall so someone else can enjoy them.
Donating Home baking to the cake stall or the teas If you're a keen baker and have time to bake anything at all, please do! Baked goods can be delivered to the cake stall or the tea pavilion from 11.30am on the day.
Enter the Children’s Home-baking Cup Cake competition There will be two age groups: 4- 8 years and 9-14 years and two categories: best decorated cup cake and best tasting cup cake. Cakes should be dropped off at the Recreation Ground between 1300 and 14.30 on the day of the Fete.
Volunteering to help on the day with setting up, parking, the teas or manning the stalls. Even 30 minutes of your time can really help to make the day run smoothly. If you would like to help in some way, please contact James Wilkie on 07545 391977.
And most importantly, come along on the day and join in the fun.
Please make sure that you put the date in your diary now.
All the proceeds from the Fete will go to Local good causes and to projects and activities
