West Show - Wheelbarrow

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!
