Monkton Farleigh Village Fete 2014

I’ve just got home after our wonderful village fete. My third one now, we actually got involved this year and ran the bottle stall.


After spending many evenings this week labelling the bottles and folding raffle tickets whilst watching the football, we were lucky enough to have gorgeous weather all day…my slightly sunburnt arms are evidence of this!


We set up our stall at lunchtime and just had enough time for a picnic before the crowds started to arrive.

We were swamped but managed to completely sell out after about an hour (I think it was our jazzy sign!) which meant we had some time to wander around the other stalls, drink Pimms, buy more books, swoon over the baby racoons and enjoy a selection of cakes!


Hopefully we have raised lots of money for the village but it was just lovely to be in the beautiful grounds of the manor house and get the whole village together to celebrate in the sunshine.


Hopefully the celebrations will continue this evening with the England match too…my best friend is coming over for a takeaway then the usual nail-biting 90 minutes will ensue!


About hannahhotcakes

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
