HOLY TRINITY COLEMANS HATCH FETE RAISES IN THE REGION OF £3,500
The second Vintage Fête held by Holy Trinity Church, Coleman's Hatch attracted a large number of people from our local community who enjoyed the ambience of a very english church fête; an often heard comment was "this is like a step back in time". And the sun shone all afternoon.
Children from Hartfield School entranced everybody with their delightful colourful Maypole dancing; the Ashdown Morris Men again evoked another era with their bell-ringing, baton-wielding energetic dancing.
All the traditional stalls were represented; WI with a table groaning with homemade cakes and produce; Books, Bottle Tombola, Gifts, Plants, Collectables, Toys, Bric-à-brac, Very Classy Clothes, and finally Linens. For the children there was Face Painting, Lucky Dip, and a Treasure Hunt. There was also a Super Prized Raffle. The Mothers' Union as usual masterminded the Teas with delicious homemade cakes.
Throughout the afternoon the musician Paul Stanworth entertained us nostalgically with his rocking guitar.
Financially the Fete was a great success, raising funds (approximately £3,500) for our two local hospices and the continued restoration of the Vicarage Room, however the main aim of the Fête continues to be the drawing together of the local community.
The organisers would like to thank all those people who gave their time, effort, goodwill, and donations so generously, but who are too numerous to be mentioned individually.
Sheila van Maurik and Caroline Daszewska.
