Another £20,000 up for grabs for youth projects
Young people in the Royal Borough will have access to £20,000 to plough into youth funding schemes.
This is the sixth year in a row that the Youth Voice Youth Choice scheme has been run, allowing individuals and youth groups to apply for a slice of the money.
Grants of up to £2,500 are available in four categories – schools, individuals, target groups and youth groups and the winners are decided by an online public vote.
Applicants must live or study in the Royal Borough and be aged between 8 and 19 years (or up to age 25 if they have learning disabilities).
"The 2017 Fete Bar will be serving a range of the finest ales from Rebellion Brewery, coupled with lagers for those with slightly odd taste buds!
There will also be a selection of Chilean and Antipodean wines, not to mention Pimms O’Clock all day…
During the evening, Prosecco will also be available for that aperitif, before your Haweli Dining experience whilst soaking up the atmosphere of live music."
Posh eh? But we're told that prices remain very reasonable! (Webmaster)
If there's something you'd like to see at the fete,
let us know what it is!
We don't make any promises! ...
but your ideas are very welcome and will be seriously considered.
And if you say "yes" to add yourself to the email list, we'll send out very occasional updates.
What a spread!
Always a very popular feature of the fete, the lovely ladies of the tea tent
will tempt you with their delicious sandwiches and cakes.
Do you know someone who would like to sell or exhibit at the fete?
Stalls are available at £35 for a 3m-wide pitch - from 1pm to 5pm.
Stall holders will need to provide their own gazebo and table/chair.
No food, sweets, or plants I'm afraid, as these are already booked.
