(click on the photographs to see enlarged images)

The sun replaced rain as hundreds of people attended the sixth annual fete at Woodcote Sheltered Housing complex in Firs Road, Hethersett. 

Dark clouds threatened at times but couldn’t dampen the spirits with plenty of attractions including ice cream, candyfloss, stalls, competitions, a human fruit machine and the Woodside Infant and Nursery School’s samba band. 

The fete was organised by the recently formed Friends of Woodcote group and opened jointly by honorary group member and former scheme manager Tony Smith and Margaret Dewsbury of South Norfolk District Council. 

The compere for the day was Woodcote resident Richard Headicar who also conducted an auction. Many of the auction and raffle prizes were donated by local companies

This year’s annual fete at Woodcote Sheltered Housing Scheme in Firs Road, Hethersett, takes place on Saturday (12th July). 

It will be the sixth such event held at the complex and the first under the auspices of the Friends of Woodcote group that was set up earlier this year. 

“The previous five fetes have all been a great success and this year the friends group and residents have got together to provide an afternoon full of entertainment. We would love to see as many people as possible. You could say our fete is in their hands,” said Friends chairman David Bills. 

The event runs from 2 until 5 p.m and will feature music from the nearby Woodside Infant and Nursery School Samba Band. There will be a variety of stalls, fun and games for all the family, a raffle, tombola and auction. Refreshments, a barbecue and cream teas will also be available throughout the afternoon. Many of the prizes have been donated by local companies. 

Admission to the event is 50p for adults and free for children and this includes entry into a prize draw. 

The recent table top sale at the complex raised £216.96. 

“The day was a resounding success thanks to perfect weather that helped bring people along,” David Bills added.
