CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: Martlesham Village Fete - Saturday 18th July 2020 - Cancelled
It is with great regret that we have felt it necessary to cancel the summer fete, but each day is bringing more Covid 19 news with the peak expected to start in May and continue over the summer.
It’s appropriate to say thank you to all those who were working with the team to make the day a success: MHHL, the owners of the Green and The Pavilion Management Committee who allow us the use of their facilities; The Church, which provide another hall for us as well as refreshments; less obviously also the disposal of litter, toilet facilities and the supply of electricity;The Douglas Bader and other businesses in the square which normally do something special on the day, and also the wider businesses in Martlesham which sponsor and support us.
Vital to the success we have the Army Cadets who make the day with their hard work, the St. John’s Ambulance and the Saplings Nursery who provide essential support for our lost children procedures.
Last year Copleston High School organised the sports skill tournaments and this year they would have been joined by Kesgrave High School.
Thanks also to the entertainers, we already had a full line up arranged, the thirty odd stall holders we were expecting, the fairground and ice cream van.
Hope we haven’t missed anyone out!
All together a real team effort which shows the best side of Martlesham.
See you all in 2021!
