JULY 2021

29th      Mentmore Village Fete - see below


5 days of fun in 2021 – Monday 26th July to Friday 30th July at Cheddington School.

The Playscheme has been running for over 25 years, for one week each year and has provided many hundreds of children with the opportunity to participate in a huge range of creative and sports activities in a positive and safe environment. We have a great team of volunteer leaders who offer a huge amount of experience, enthusiasm and commitment and the week is always lots of fun!

We will be running around current guidance set out by the government and taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our volunteers and children.
To join us children need to be aged between 5 and 12 and either live in Cheddington or attend Cheddington School (current Year 6 and current Year 7 are eligible).

We are excited to announce that we are having a village fete in Mentmore on Sunday 29th August 2021 1pm-5pm
We are so looking forward to getting together to see one another and raise some money for worthy causes again.

Charities that we are planning to support are Leighton Buzzard Women’s Refuge, a local homeless charity and money will also go to our local church, St Mary’s in Mentmore.
All our favourite traditional stalls will be there - BricaBrac, Tombola, Pre-loved clothing and accessories , Produce and Cakes, Coconut shy, Splat the rat , Crockery Smash , Welly Wanging and Bale Tossing.

There will be a raffle, a dog show and a display of vintage vehicles. We are also hoping that stalls that usually attend our annual Plant Fair will be there.
Live music will be provided by Aspect and The Heath Band
Refreshments will include teas with homemade cakes, a bar, ice creams, and a barbecue.
It will be a wonderful family afternoon out after all the months of lockdown - please come and join us.
