Wheldrake church was really pleased to hold their annual fete this last Saturday 15th of May, after restrictions prevented last year’s events. Their church fete is a great way to engage with their local community, build relationships, as well as proudly raising funds to support the running costs of the church. Some of the income gained is also donated to six charities around the world to further spread the love and peace upheld in their Christian community.
As to be expected, things were done a little different his year to maintain a safe, friendly environment for everyone to browse, with a fewer stalls for social distancing. Renowned favourites returned for yet another successful year ranging from books, music and classic movies to toys, bric-a-brac, cakes, guessing games, and the ever-popular plant stall. Whatever your taste, there was something for everyone.
Organiser of the fete, Barbra Cater, commented,
"While we unfortunately couldn’t keep our tombola or children’s games, it didn’t stop people from turning up - with us finally being able to feel our sense of community safely again even if it was socially distanced and wearing masks.
