There will be many traditional games and entertainment, including a pet show, children’s races, morris dancing, and refreshments.

There is free parking and the grand opening on August 27 will be at 1pm.

In support of the fete, Mr Waite will be selling and signing copies of his latest book Solitude, along with Out of the Silence – a collection of poems by the author.
