Let’s hope the weather is kind to the Utkinton Garden Fete tomorrow.
This year’s Garden Fete will take place in the magnificent gardens of Tirley Garth on Saturday 1st July by the kind permission of Professor and Mrs Redmond. The Fete is supported by Utkinton St Paul’s C of E Primary School, the PTA, Utkinton W.I. and Utkinton Village Hall Committee.
It is planned to start the day with the football tournament at around 12:30, the tournament is contested between teams from local primary schools. They compete for the ‘Mark Williamson Trophy’ that is presented to the winners at 4:30.
The highlight of the day is the procession and crowning of the ‘Rose Queen’ that takes place at 2:45 pm. This is a traditional ceremony that dates back over 60 years and will bring a tear and gasp of admiration from all watchers.
There will be musical entertainment provided by the ‘Crewe Concert Band’ during the afternoon. There will also be childrens’ games and a number of interesting stalls. Utkinton W.I will provide delicious afternoon teas.
We will also host a Grand Raffle with a fantastic range of prizes on offer with the draw taking place at 4:45 with lucky tickets being drawn out by the ‘Rose Queen’ herself.
The Fete committee are looking for more volunteers to assist in transporting stalls, tables and chairs from Village Halls to Tirley Garth as well as erecting and dismantling them. If you would like to man a stall, or just help in general contact Richard Francis on 01829 752551 or email him firstname.lastname@example.org . See you there..
