ALL THE FUN OF THE FAIR

Wacky Races, High Striker, Human Fruit Machine, Homemade Produce, Art
Roll up roll up, it will be all the fun of the fair at this year’s Sandon Fete with the high striker, tin can alley and splat the rat as some the fairground stalls at which to try your luck. This popular annual event has contemporary activities but also many time-honoured traditions that make the village fete such a social and special community occasion and the organisers are delighted to be able to hold it once again.
The fete will be opened in time-honoured tradition by Sandon’s recent bride followed by entertainment from the Sandon JMI children.
Along with the back to front bike race and space hopper races there will be a range of traditional and more unusual stalls providing enjoyment and fun for all; quizzes, guess the weight of the cake, bouncy castle, the human fruit machine, football wall, coconut shy, tombola, bric-a-brac, bottle stall and the Grand Draw offers £150 cash as first prize as well as bountiful hampers to win.
Villagers contribute scrummy homemade marmalade, chutneys, jellies and jams that are always eagerly sought out on the produce stall as are plants and cuttings and other culinary delights made with the abundance of summer and autumn produce.
Visitors will be able to enjoy fun fair food with toffee apples, candy floss and chocolate fountain as well a BBQ lunch and scrumptious homemade cakes, puddings and cream teas available throughout the afternoon. There is also a licensed bar for a pint and a glass of prosecco is always a popular tipple.
The church will be decorated with stunning flower arrangements created by skilled arrangers from the village depicting the theme with displays such as helter-skelter, dodgems, coconut shy and hook the duck. An Art show will showcase paintings and artwork from a number of talented villagers too.
All monies raised at the fete will go towards All Saints’ Church, Sandon.
The fete is held on Sandon’s village green and in the village hall, SG9 0QX from 1.00 -4.00pm on Saturday 18th September 2021 and there is free parking.
