Preparations for the Village Fete

The Knit and Natter team (who meet every Tuesday morning at St Andrew’s Coffee shop in term time) have been beavering away creating a mountain of beautiful items for the Village Fete. Alison Wheatley is Number One engine in this amazing machine, ably assisted by the many hands (and brains) of the group.

For all items sold, 80% of the purchase price will go to Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice. They now fund Alexander’s Nurses who support families across the local area, in their own homes, providing much needed respite, palliative care, emotional and practical support. They are working towards building a children’s hospice centre for these local familie,s which will be supported by a home care team.

20% of the purchase price will go to The Coffee Shop. This fantastic community facility that started with a flask and an empty room, continues to be an oasis for busy villagers, a warm welcome for those who come to ballet, a creative space for art and craft ideas and a test audience for local entrepreneurs’ new business ideas.

We still rely on volunteers, but we are now in a purpose built coffee shop.

The Village Fete is this Saturday in Stoke Poges School grounds from 12.30pm. Stoke Poges Church members have two stalls – the Knit and Natter goodies plus children’s craft activities and are helping to marshall parking. The Men’s Group Skittle Alley will be in action too. If you can help in any way, please contact the church office before 12.30 on Friday.
