Summer Fete Planning Meeting – Volunteers welcome!

18th December 2017 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm
The Dirty Habit PH in Upper Street.
Upper St
Hollingbourne, Maidstone ME17

Hollingbourne’s next Annual Summer Fete and Exemption Dog Show will be  held on Saturday 9th June 2018 on the Lance Memorial Playing Field. All are welcome to attend this meeting for the 2018 event.

Hollingbourne Parish Council is keen to widen the support for the Fete which has raised thousands of pounds for local causes over the years. Unfortunately the organisation of the Fete has become the responsibility of fewer and fewer people and the Parish Council is keen to widen the membership of the Fete Committee so that it is more inclusive of the Hollingbourne as a whole. All local organisations are invited to attend.

At the first Meeting of the Fete Committee on 29th November it was agreed that the theme of event would be the “40’s and 50’s” which was the start of a 73 period of increasing peace and prosperity in Europe after WW2.  Stall prices were fixed at £15 for Hollingbourne organisations, £20 for non Hollingbourne organisations, and £25 for commercial traders in the hope that there would be more stalls. Bookings may be made via the Parish Clerk at or Tel 880526.

Further information is available from Vicki Smith, Parish Clerk Tel 880526
