We are celebrating holidays, especially the old-fashioned seaside. Donkeys are coming to give rides, Punch and Judy will be entertaining you. The 1949 open backed double decker bus will be selling tickets for a ride. We have our crafts people coming – you can meet them and watch them working, taste the home-made chutneys, buy bespoke jewellery or get that special gift. Drop in at the White Elephant or book stall – there are always plenty of bargains. Dennis is bringing his train to give rides and fairground organ to listen to.
We are hoping for lots of vintage/classic vehicles in our Transport Show – there is a new website: https://sa9904.wixsite.com/sandonfete Keeping up with the theme of vintage: The Way We Wore and JP Interior Retail are bringing their vintage items for sale. Come and play Ferret Roulette run by Staffordshire Wildlife Rescue Centre in Sandon.
Sit and relax in the atmosphere of the Refreshments Marquee, enjoying home-made cakes, sandwiches, tea and coffee whilst listening to the Florence Colliery Brass Band. Grand Raffle – tickets are available through our normal outlets – lots of prizes to be won.
Windmill Broadcasting is keeping everyone informed and Lisa Fairy is coming to do her face painting. Trophy Dog Food is sponsoring the dog show – bring your faithful hounds and enter them in the classes. Slaters are sponsoring our pop-up bar and there will be a selection of gins to try.
This year we are supporting Midlands Air Ambulance, RABI (The Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution) and Sandon Village Church. They will each be having a stand to promote themselves and tell you what their current projects are and where the proceeds will be going from the fete.
Unfortunately we will not be having a Horticultural Show this year but if there is someone out there who would like to organise one for next year then please get in touch.
