Bishop Roger Morris is helping to raise awareness of this year’s event which is hoping to raise money for St Mary’s Church in the village.

Bishop Roger said: “The church has been a focal point of this village for a thousand years.

“I hope plenty of people will turn out on June 9, have fun and support the efforts of The Friends of St Mary’s.”

As part of the event a YAK 52 plan will perform over the fete.

Organiser John Walker said: “We are so lucky to have a fabulous rural location in Lodge Lane.
