Crich fete returns to its usual July slot this year. Saturday July 16th from 1.00pm on the recreation ground. Crich Monument Race is also back on the same day and will commence at 1.30pm with the finish line on the Rec.
As always, there will be lots of entertainment for the whole family, both in the display area and across the site. And the good people running the tea (& cake) tent, licensed bar and barbeque will be there to refresh you.
There is still time for not-for-profit parish-based groups, organisations and clubs to book a space to promote their activities, perhaps raise some funds and enrol new members.
Remember, the fete is funded by the community for the community, so it will be great to get as many groups engaged as possible.
And to help raise funds for future fetes, the BARN DANCE is returning this year! This will be on Saturday August 27th, subject to the necessary permissions and licenses.
Keep an eye on their Facebook page for details.
We can also be contacted by email on email@example.com
