Tewin Village fete

Tewin village held it’s annual summer fete this Saturday on the village green. The weather was fine and the crowd filled the green entirely. It was a genteel and relaxed affair which aimed to raise money for charity and support local community amenities.

In full swing


The organisers held a charity auction for a signed streetsign, signed by the cast of Eastenders no less. The auction winner bought the sign for £205, interestingly it has a notice in small print on the back of it that said it could not be sold on without the permission of the BBC.  Below is a picture of the auctioneer and his keen helper as the auction was underway:

The lucky winner had the bonus of having his prize handed over by none other than Eastenders actor and local resident Jake Wood, the lovable rogue Max Branning in the soap. In the picture below you can see Jake about to hand over the sign to the man in the white T-shirt, he had to sign for it first of course!

The Tewin village fete was once again a low key and relaxed lazy afternoon. It’s often easy to forget we have such attractive villages on our doorstep.
