Annual fête deemed a success by organisers

Stokes Singers perform at the Stoke Gifford Fête.

On Monday 28th May, the Stoke Gifford Fête took place in the Trust Grounds, North Road. It had been a weekend of trepidation for the organisers as they hoped that the thunderstorms would all be over for the big day. Luckily, the rain held off and the fete had a large turnout.

Dave Addison, chair of the Stoke Gifford Trust, said:

“After last year’s heavy rain just before the start of the fete, we were very relieved that the weather on Monday was so kind to us and pleased that we had so many people turn out out for both the fete and the dog show.”

“We were also grateful for the continued support from Stoke Gifford Parish Council and the 1st Stoke Gifford Scouts, as well as local businesses and organisations, which makes the fete viable by providing resources and volunteers. Although, if any local residents would like to help ensure the continued existence of the fête, we would love to have more help with both organisation and running of the event.”

If anyone would like to become involved with the trust committee, please contact Dave or one of the other members of the trust through their website stokegiffordtrust.org.uk

Diamond Jubilee Fête draws the crowds

Posted on Friday 15th June 2012 at 5:52 pm by SH (Editor)

Stoke Gifford Diamond Jubilee Fête, held on Monday 4th June 2012.

The local community came out in force to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee at the recent Stoke Gifford Fête held on Monday 4th June.

An article on the Stoke Gifford Parish Council website reports:

“The event was a great success an a good afternoon was had by all. The event was organised by the Stoke Gifford Trust Committee with support from the Parish Council and could not have taken place without the help of a number of volunteers on the day.”

Entry to the event was just one pence and all visitors were treated to free refreshments and one free “go” on an activity (swing boats, bouncy castle, quad bikes or archery).

Music was provided by the Westerleigh Brass Band and the crowds were further entertained by a dog show (at the top end of the field) and a Taekwon-Do demonstration.

Prizes were awarded for the best original Jubilee hat, the best Jubilee flower arrangement and the best Jubilee model, and the day was rounded off with a prize raffle.

Ernie Brown, Chair of Stoke Gifford Parish Council, told The Journal:

“Personally, I thought it was a great success and something for the Council to build on in the future. The aim of the event, in this time of austerity, was for the Parish Council and Trust to give something back to the parishioners. It was great to see the community enjoying a great day out. I understand that the attendance was approx 2,500.”

The Journal understands that the Parish Council contributed £1,500 towards the event (TBC).

The Parish Council says it hopes to organise further (and regular) events for the community and a consultation will be launched at the forthcoming Annual Public Meeting on Tuesday 19th June (7:30pm start), at St Michael’s Church Rooms Cafe, to explore possible ideas.
