Despite the horrendous weather conditions on Saturday 8th June, Loxwood Village turned out in force to support our now well established Village Fete and Dog Show. Considering how bad the day was, the Fete Committee are more than pleased with an overall profit of more than £5,000 that will be distributed to various local good causes.
The number of entries for the Dog Show was exceptional this year, we would like to thank our Judges, Lizzy Robinson and Mark Bridger-Pescott, for their time and their expertise.
Due to the weather conditions, the Fete Committee had to make last minute changes to the programme. Fortunately many people were able to enjoy the entertainment that was provided in the dry in the Village Hall such as Slinfold Concert Band, The North Singers, Loxwood Singers, Ukes Away and a Magic Show for the children.
Without the support of many local businesses and organisations, the Loxwood Fete would not be the event that it is now. We would particularly like to thank the Billingshurst Lions, Billingshurst Rotarians, the Loxwood Medical Practice, Loxwood Sports Association and all of our advertisers and sponsors.
We would like to make special mention of all our volunteers who manned stalls, helped with the setting up of the Fete as well as the taking down and the many hours spent organising the events, producing the programme, cake making, generally helping out and supporting this fantastic village community event.
Please make a note of the date for the 2020 Loxwood Village Fete and Fun Dog Show which will be Saturday June 6th.
