On the 23rd June 2018, Moorcroft House saw the annual Penallt Old Church Summer Fete. The glorious weather, Bream Silver Band, Morris dancers, classic cars and a wide range of stalls really set the atmosphere for a great day out for all the family. Children enjoyed running around and having goes on games like the Coconut Shy, along with eating ice creams and having donkey rides. Meanwhile others enjoyed teas and cakes, chatting and wandering around the stalls which included the tombola, plants, books and toys.

Everyone loved the classic cars, set off by the beautiful backdrop of Moorcroft accompanied by the chink of tea cups with the chatter of villagers. Mo the donkey was a big hit with the little ones and of course we all loved throwing wet sponges at Craig and his team! It was a pleasure to welcome morris dancers to the fete and that looks like its good fun!

Everyone enjoyed the day out and there was really great community spirit in the air, maybe it was that that meant the Fete ended up raising over £2000 to put towards the maintenance of Penallt Old Church and it’s grounds.

Overall a wonderful day and a huge thanks to the volunteers who put lots of their own time into making the fete possible and ensuring that it raised as much money as it did.
