Western Parish Fete – Saturday 12 July 2014
First the bad news: there will be no West Show this year. We’re still waiting for re-seeded grass to establish itself, and re-seeding to continue at Manor Farm.
Now the good news: building on the Association’s participation in last year’s St Peter’s Parish Fête, the first Western Parish Fête will take place on Saturday 12 July 2014 between 10am and 4:30pm at St Peter’s Showground. Entry and parking is free.
Whilst the fête itself will necessarily be on a much smaller scale than the West Show, there will still be plenty to see and do. Take a look!
