Is there a need for a village fete in Shipton?

Is there a need for a village fete in Shipton?

 Previously, Shipton’s village fete was held bi-annually, alternating with the church fete. Due to various reasons it has not been held for a number of years, although the church fete continues.
The Parish Council has recently taken ownership of all the old village fete equipment.
Serious consideration is currently being given to resurrecting the village fete and a working group will meet shortly to look at the feasibility and possible formats.
Anyone interested in attending this meeting, or with ideas please contact Tim Brunsden at
