Following our recent appeals for new fete committee members and helpers, which did not result in sufficient offers of support, the remaining members of the committee have agreed that it is the end of the road for the Ben Rhydding Community Fete. This decision was not taken lightly and after 13 successful events, we are sad that the fete in 2018 turned out to be the last one. We would like to thank everyone involved over the years – it’s been a lot of fun and we hope the annual summer fete provided many enjoyable occasions for visitors and participants alike.
Your community needs YOU!
Ben Rhydding Community Fete is planning to return next year after an enforced absence. The free, community get-together takes place every June through the efforts of its volunteer committee – some of whom have been involved from the start in 2006.
A few committee members are now stepping down, so we need more people to join, otherwise the fete can’t take place. The tasks are not onerous, and many hands make light work to organise the fun event for the community. In particular we need a new treasurer, someone to manage the health and safety aspects, and a secretary to take the minutes and do some of the fete administration. The friendly committee meets 3 – 4 times a year and most communication is done via email. If you are interested and want to know more, please contact Karen Palframan, chair,
If you can help with hands-on jobs at the Fete, we’d also love to hear from you!
We are having an open meeting at 8pm. on Tuesday, 19th Oct, for anyone who would like to meet us / find out more. Venue TBC. Thank you!
After careful consideration, the Fete committee have decided that this year’s Ben Rhydding Community Fete cannot go ahead. The next Fete will take place on Saturday, 18th June, 2022, and we hope to see you there…
Ben Rhydding Community Fete returns on Saturday, 20th June 2020.
