Westerfield Fete basks in August sunshine, raising funds for Church

Contrary to the poor weather over the previous week, Dr Dan was delighted to officially open the annual Westerfield Fete on Saturday 12th August. With so much work being put in by teams of volunteers, it's always a disappointment when the weather scuppers things on the big day.

Thankfully, this was not an issue for Westerfield Fete, where visitors enjoyed the warm weather and sunshine, along with a range of traditional activities. Dr Dan very much enjoyed visiting the many stalls, which seem to grow in number each year.

Supporting Westerfield Church, this annual fete raises much needed funds for the Church and this year, fundraisers were hoping to top last year's efforts.

Despite the cost of tickets from Ipswich, reliability and speed of service have not improved over the years....
