Village Fete 2006
The village fete held at Church Farm and hosted by Peter & Bridget Hall was a great success. The weather couldn't have been better. At one point there were over 150 cars in the car park.
But the really good news is that the fete raised over £2,800 for church funds and that is £600 more than the previous best. Thank you to everyone who came and contributed.
Have a look at the photos below - anyone you recognise? Who is the lady with the painted face; do let us know. Click on the pictures to enlarge them.
Watton Silver Band
The Watton Silver Band played like professionals. The music was a great attraction.
Meanwhile we found Marissa Lee aged 4 having her face painted - Isn't she a picture?
After School Gymnastics Team
Once the band finished playing, the Gymnastics team performed some excellent ground work routines. Here they are limbering up.
An entranced audience
Here are just some of the audience who enjoyed first the band and then the gymnastics.
Taking a breather.

But face painting is not just for the very young - we didn't get this lady's name - do you recognise her?
Bridget Hall did - It's Anne Byles - see the note on the Visitor's page.
Only £1 a book of tickets.

Ice Cream anyone?
With the warm weather, Denise Bearne (right) did a very brisk trade selling Ice Creams.
Not exactly a picnic.

Enjoying a stroll.
For some a quiet stroll in the fine weather was equally enjoyable.
A Quiet Moment
And for others a quiet moment in the tea garden was just what was needed.
