June 2017

Our Summer Fete was held on Saturday 10th June and we raised a fantastic £455.85 on the day.  It was a lovely hot summers day and everyone had a super day.  We enjoyed music from 'Michael', a Reggae singer who performed for us out on the front lawn.  There were various stalls, including; Tombola, Guess the weight of Oscar, our Guinea Pig, BBQ, Games such as Hook a Duck and Skittles, Cake Stall and a Raffle with excellent prizes of; Hobby Craft gifts, Leeds Castle Family Entry for one day, Golf for 8 people at Wrotham Heath, Tea Shop Gift Voucher and A Hairdressing Voucher with Emma, our Hairdresser.

As last years 'Fairby Bake Off' was such a huge success, we held the event again.  The competition is greater this year as we have more entries.  Our lucky judges got to taste all the cakes and decided on which looks and tastes the best.  The lucky winner won a BlueWater voucher.

Residents helped us stick on Raffle tickets for our Tombola bottles and have been busy making sweet cones for our Fete and decorating them with ribbon.  

A few of us visited our local garden centre to pick out some flowers for our hanging baskets.  We are also lucky enough to have a Florist residing with us who has created 2 stunning hanging baskets for our Front Door, a beautiful Flower Basket for our Raffle and other pot plants for our garden.

All proceeds from the Fete go into our Residents Fund which help fund forthcoming events and outings.

Our duck eggs arrived and all 6 hatched within 2 days.  See our photo and video gallery to see how cute they are.
