Jubilee Fete - 4th June 2012

What a wonderful day! The weather held off, and close to 1700 people attended our Jubilee celebrations. It cost £1 on the gate, kids free, and over £1000 was raised for Parley First School and the Parish Church.

Most thanks must go to the organisers - the Parish Church, the Parish Council, Parley First School, the Wimborne and Ferndown Lions Club, and Parley Rotary, all headed by Garnet Lambert. They have all put a huge amount of work in to make it such a success.

The Fete was opened by Chris Chope, our local MP, followed by childrens games and Brainey's Blues Band, who were excellent and played throughout the day. There was a Parley First School Presentation which included a cracking gymnastic display, and then the Sea Cadets provided us with a tip-top display of marching and parading, they looked superb.

No Fete is complete without the egg and spoon race, which took place in our Arena, along with other traditional races! The day ended with the results of various raffles being given, and the very good Wessex Accordion Band played us out.

There were so many great stalls it is not possible to name them all, but Parley Rotary did us proud with a tennis ball shy, a chip-into-the-bucket competition and more, there was a lovely Flower display in the Hut, a steady flow of teas and cakes were served all day by the gang in the Memorial Hall, where we were serenaded by a string quartet. The Friends of All Saints had Fizz and strawberries on the go by the look of it, and I saw the biggest dog I have ever seen at the Dog Show - two enormous wolfhounds, as well as many other lovely dogs.

There were many other stalls with books, knick-knacks and plants, with burgers, crepes, candy floss and ice cream for the hungry! Thanks to everyone who came along, please click below to see all of the photos from our big day.
