Record amount raised at fete
Posted on May 14, 2008
The record sum of £3,700 was raised at the Dagnall village fete.
The sunshine attracted the crowds, who were glad to spend towards the provision of a new all-weather track at the village recreation ground and towards school funds.
Cathy Bovington at the school said: "There was a great community spirit. It was a wonderful day."
The fete on Saturday (May 10) included many side shows, family races and games.
There was a display of vintage cars and motorcycles and staff member Adrian Bush ran a goal shooting attraction on behalf of Eaton Bray Lions.
Sally Thorne organised the family races and also the hog roast which followed in the evening and included a disco for the children.
