Cottingham Village Fete raises record £3,687

The recent Cottingham Village Fete raised a record £3,687 for the refurbishment of Cottingham CofE School's Early Years playground and the upkeep of the village church, St Mary Magdalene.

On a glorious summers day, visitors came along in their droves to enjoy a variety of attractions including live music, a childrens dance demonstrations, a vintage fire engine, helium balloon lucky dip game, beer tent, BBQ and homemade cakes, all provided by community volunteers.

The popular made in the village stall, stocked with handmade goods crafted by the ladies of Cottingham and Middleton, along with hand-carved garden sculptures, planters and gift items from Jon and Claire Dixon of Treespace, raised a very impressive £680 alone.

The children were delighted with rides on a miniature train pulled by Pete Stevens Garrett 4 inch scale traction engine Buttercup, the Pets Cuddle Corner from West Lodge Farm Park, that became a perfect chill-out zone during the day, and 10p games and competitions.
