Last weekend saw frenzy in the village. The shop was filled with charcoal, salad, lamb, burgers, sausages, casks of ale and coconuts… it was that time again, the village fete. Chilbolton Stores had once again been asked to provide the bar-b-que.
We couldn’t have been luckier with the weather, Saturday was dry, sunny and very, very hot. Much hotter of course behind the three huge BBQs needed to provide food on that sort of scale. Thank you to David, Carol and Patrick for suffering that on our behalf.
At 12.30pm we had our first customers and I think we had a queue back to the Pimms and Beer tent from then on, Martin, Liz, Trisha and I hardly had a chance to look up. The upshot was a very successful stall that took nearly £1400 and the fete making over £10,000. Overall, a grand day out!
Remember, you can get many products featured at the fete in your local village store:
Gold Muddler Ale from Andwell Brewery
And look out for forthcoming promotions on Pimms
If you ask him very nicely David might even tell you how he makes the marinade for the lamb!
