Hadnall village fete has been saved after fears it would be cancelled for the first time in more than 35 years.
Residents from two new Hadnall developments have pulled together to lead the planning and organisation of the event which is essential for raising funds to keep the village hall open.
Neil Duxbury, chairman and treasury of the Hadnall village hall committee, said: “It’s lovely to see new people who have recently moved into the village wanting to get involved and it means the village hall is safe.
“Without the fete, we wouldn’t have the funds to keep the hall open.
“The hall is a major asset to the village and is used at least once a day, most days of the week by villagers of all ages.”
Fete attractions include a silent auction with the chance win a brand new Audi for a whole weekend, a mud chamber spa day for two at The Shrewsbury Club and a four ball round of gold at Hawkstone Park Golf Club.
The free-to-attend fete offers the opportunity for visitors to get competitive with a ‘digger challenge’ and gladiator duals.
The family day will also feature live music, a village BBQ and Hadnall’s New Inn pub is to open a pop-up bar.
A raffle stall offers a wide range of exciting prizes including Marks & Spencer vouchers, a meat hamper, a professional photoshoot and many more.
Julie Richardson, Chair of the Hadnall village fete committee, said: “As a newcomer to the village myself and after months of preparations, I’m really pleased to confirm that this year’s fete will be going ahead after all.
“We’ve got a fantastic line-up for all of the family so it’s well worth popping along and don’t forget to bring your pennies!
“This village has been so welcoming to us and it’s been really great to get involved with an event that’s at the heart of the community.”
Hadnall village fete takes place on Sunday 1 September 11am – 3pm on the village green. All money raised will help fund the future of Hadnall village hall.
