Bury Church Fete is back! This highly popular village fete, set at the foot of the picturesque South Downs and overlooking the river Arun has been a long-standing summer favourite with locals and visitors for many years. For 2016, the organisers have added in more child-friendly events and some great opportunities for adults to grab a bargain.

Located in the beautiful surroundings of Dorset House School the fete has been well known in the past for its traditional stands including the tombola, fashion boutique, cakes, plants and pictures. For 2016 new additions include a full “Day In The Life” demonstration by the amazing Canine Partners, showcasing how their assistance dogs work to transform the lives of people living with disabilities. There is also a chance to see the superb Manning School of Irish Dancing in action, with a brilliant display by their students and a traditional Punch & Judy show for all to enjoy.

Local MP for Arundel and South Downs Nick Herbert will be announcing the winners of the raffle, where the top prize is £300 and runners up receive both cash and prizes including lunch at Amberley Castle and supper at the Squire and Horse pub.

We’ve kept the successful inflatable slide, ice cream stand with local ice cream, Splat-The-Rat, and coconut shy from last year as well which we very much hope will add to a wonderful day out for all the family,” said Organiser, Carol Shillingford.

Other attractions include:
• Tug of War between the parish team and local teams
• Licensed Bar
• Barbeque
• Prize Raffle draw with a top prize of £300 and many others.
