At about 2pm on Sunday 28th July I stood in the middle of the North Town Field and realised that the Fulking Social Committee together with Allsorts Dog Rescue and quite a few helpers had created as near to a perfect village fair as you will find.
Perfect weather, exotic dancing, lovely dog show, a great selection of stalls, tombola and model steam engine, really enjoyable teas and food, exciting tug of war, fun kids games, wonderful music and a highly professional bar were all enjoyed by the many visitors. It was truly memorable.
Too early to announce the financial details but sufficient evidence to tell you that it was profitable and improves our reserves for village hall and North Town Field requirements. And I nearly forgot! Call my Bluff on the Friday was just as successful.
What a wonderful Fulking weekend! It will be quite a challenge to follow this up with a repeat performance next year.
In the field next to the church in Church Lane (BN6 9BT) on Sunday 23rd June 2017 from 10:30am to 4:30pm. We are using a bigger field to welcome more visitors and more stalls promoting local and traditional businesses, with lots of stalls and homemade cakes. We are raising funds for the upkeep of Newtimber Church and also supporting the Martlets Hospice and SUDEP.
Please join us at our traditional village fete in the (former) rectory garden on Saturday 15th June from 2:00–4:30pm. This event helps fund the general upkeep of our beautiful Norman Church. There will be games and stalls for all ages — golf, toys, plants, cakes, books, a raffle and a tombola. Enjoy a scrumptious cream tea and watch the maypole dancing or puppet show with a glass of refreshing Pimms.
