Traditional day out in support of Jevington


Ferret roulette is just one of the attractions at traditional Jevington Village Fete which takes place on Saturday June 13 from 1pm to 5pm.

It will be held on Rectory Fields behind the church and tickets cost £2, but are just £1 for senior citizens.

Money raised will go towards supporting the local community and the Demelza Children’s Hospice.

Organiser Carolyn Lindsay said, “This year we have added a food festival element, and will be serving Indian food, Thai stir fry, artisan-made sausage in a bun and traditional English foods made by Jevington’s own pop-up restaurant chef, Ben Dawson. “The fete opens at 1pm this year so visitors can sample the extra foods on offer – including the four original recipe chutneys made by the villagers to sell on the home produce stall”.

There will be Punch and Judy shows, ferret roulette and craft stalls, as well as WI cakes, flower displays and plants.

Visitors can have a go at tombola, a raffle and coconut shy or even beat the goalie.

There will also be a tea tent, bar with real local ales and a fun dog show.

The fete also supports Jevington Village Hall, Church and Cricket Club.

There will be music from The Hot Club of Jevington.
