Between us we made over £3000 at the fête 2016. This is somewhat more than last year, despite the thunder and lightning.

Somerford Keynes Village Fete 2016 was held on

Saturday 26th June at Croft House by courtesy of Sir

Richard and Lady Needham, who as you can see below,

took part in the proceedings with enthusiasm

The 2017 Fete will be on Saturday 24th  June

Judy Monger writes:

To all who were involved with the fête, the planners, the arrangers, the brilliant beggars who obtained most of those prizes and promises, the ticket sellers, those who donated promises, the fixers, the doers, book collectors filling rooms, handicrafts, preserves and plants taking all year to make and get ready, the advertising team, the cake makers, the super indispensable heavy gang magically producing tables and chairs from all over, the setter uppers of gazebos and stalls, the two girls on bikes towing trailers full of toys for their stall riding along to Croft House, all stall helpers and everyone else, we thank you all sincerely for your generosity and commitment. Thunder, lightning and heavy rain could not deter those Phoenix Flames girls from rolling on the wet grass during their determined display, a spirit which sums up the help of everyone. Above all, we earnestly thank our kind hosts for a most enjoyable day in their beautiful garden and arboretum and hope the derangement was minimal. Thanking you again on behalf of the PCC, All Saint’s Church, Somerford Keynes with Shorncote.
Among all the other activities there was also a photo competition. See many of the pictures on the Competition page. If you took any pictures at the fête and are willing to publish them, please send them to web@ All the pictures so far on this page were taken by Pat Cook.
