 What’s on


17th Annual Church Fete 2pm at the Bell Park, St Nectan’s Welcombe


 Planning is well under way for the Fete which will be a little different this year.   It will start at 2.00 pm (not the usual 2.30 pm), with a FUN dog show starting at 2.15 pm (entries on the day). see OPPOSITE -->>
There will be a new competition to make scarecrows or mannequins and display them in the church or church grounds by 12 noon on the day of the Fete.   These will be judged in 3 classes:  12 years and under, over 12 years/adults, and families/friends.   So now is the time to start thinking about making an exhibit – maybe a character from a book or  nursery rhyme, a celebrity or a politician or a nun peering out from behind a gravestone!   They can be as scary, humorous and outrageous as you like and you can make one on your own or together with family or friends.
There will be a good variety of stalls inside  the marquee and we would welcome donations of bottles, china, cakes, buns, toys, games, books, hand made craft items, jewellery, bathroom sundries, plants and produce, and raffle prizes for the hampers.   There is a box in the back of the church for your donations.    Outside there will be the ever popular china smash stall, ice creams and lollies, displays by Meddon & Welcombe Spinners, music and other fun competitions.
Cream teas and a delicious assortment of cakes will be available in the church.
Last year there was a tremendous effort to raise funds to restore the frame in the bell tower, overhaul the bells and repoint the church tower.   This work has now been completed so please come and hear the bells and admire the work of the craftsmen on the tower and support our village church.   Updates on the church and Fete (including classes for the dog show) can be found on the website
come and join us for a fun and entertaining afternoon whilst raising much needed funds to keep our beautiful church open.
