Winnersh Summer Fete attracted well over a thousand people this year. Over 50 local groups and small businesses provided a fun-packed afternoon for young and old alike.

Entertainment included Morris dancing, a tag rugby demonstration, the ever popular dog agility display and the wheelbarrow races, introduced for the first time last year, proved to be great fun.

Musical accompaniment was provided by a jazz band, sponsored by Prospect Estate Agency, and by Tim Valentine on keyboard in the bar.

The enthusiasm of stallholders and visitors to the fete was undiminished by a couple of sharp showers and the fete raised a record amount of money (over £1200) for its selected charities Guide Dogs and Dementia UK.This was greatly helped by a silent auction for prizes donated by Porsche Reading (a Porsche VIP Driving Experience at Silverstone) and Bearwood Lakes Golf Club (a 4-ball golf day).

John Southgate, chairman of the fete organising committee said "I was really pleased with the way the day went. Despite the weather we had a fantastic turnout of both participants and visitors and managed to raise record amounts for our main charities. And everyone I spoke to said that they would be back next year!"
