Come to a traditional Summer Fête on Sunday 19th July 12noon until 3pm at Eastling School, ME13 0BA.
The nationally respected antiques dealer John Ainsley will be offering accurate valuations of any small antique items brought along by the public, in exchange for a donation to Friends of Eastling School. A variety of stalls will provide an entertaining afternoon for all the family, with the chance to buy old fashioned sweets, plants, nearly new toys, second hand books and, as always, the chance to win prizes on the new gifts, teddy and bottle tombolas.
Fête activities for children and adults include sporting events and races, a bouncy castle, hoopla, coconut shy and Beat the Goalie. Local charity Happy Endings Rescue Centre will visit us again this year with some animals that can be petted by children. The vintage Tea Room will provide delicious homemade light lunches and a mouth - watering variety of homemade cakes to eat in or take away.
If something hot is more your fancy, a Doughty's burger or sausage can be ordered from the BBQ, along with a quality Kentish beer from the bar. Singer James Ludlow will set the mood and entertain with his eclectic repertoire of songs. And don’t forget the Grand Raffle which offers fabulous prizes: A pair of Hudl computer tablets, an annual family ticket to Wingham Wildlife Park and a Dolce Gusto coffee maker to be won by the winning first three tickets drawn.
There are many other great treats to be taken home, including a tasting tour for two at the Shepherd Neame brewery, family days out at The Rare Breeds Centre and Leeds Castle, a meal for four at The Carpenters Arms and a Tesco hamper.
