Dr Dan drops in at the Sweffling and Metfield village fetes

Dr Dan Poulter MP meets one of the local residents at the Sweffling village feteThe annual village Sweffling fete returned with a number of stalls and activities on display, including a bouncy castle for young children, coconut shy competition and dog show. The raffle competition also proved popular, with all of the prizes donated by local rural businesses, including the Wildmeat Company and the White Horse in neighbouring Rendham. Dan then paid a visit to the Metfield Fete on St John’s Meadow, where he was greeted by local pig farmer and chairman of the Parish Council in Metfield, Peter Mortimer and shown around the various stalls, competitions and games before dropping in at the Horticultural show in the village hall, where locally grown plant and flowers were being auctioned. All of the proceeds raised at the Metfield fete go towards the upkeep of the local parish church and village hall.

Dan would like to extend his thanks to Roger Askew and Peter Mortimer for guiding him around the Sweffling and Metfield village fetes respectively, along with all of those who attended or volunteered at the fetes. He very much looks forward to visiting again next year.
