Like­wise items for the Trash and Trea­sure.

Of course cooks will be en­cour­aged to bake cakes and slices for the Cake Stall as the fete gets closer, and any pro­duce will also be grate­fully re­ceived.

There will be the pop­u­lar nov­elty baby show, Devon­shire Teas, and lots more. So make it a date to bring your fam­ily along to the Com­mu­nity Cen­tre on Novem­ber 6.
