Golden Green Summer Fete

We couldn’t have asked for better weather for last month’s fete – not too hot, not too windy. There was a steady flow of people all afternoon enjoying the entertainment and the gorgeous food and drink on offer. The successful outcome wouldn’t have been possible without the help of so many people – too many to name individually but in particular our GGA Chair Alec. Over £1200 was raised towards hall maintenance and village events. Thank you to everyone who participated.
