WAPPENHAM’S village fete raised more than £1,400 for the upkeep of the parish church playground facilities.

The organisers think around 250 visitors enjoyed home produce stalls, teas and cakes, bric-a-brac, book stalls and a wide variety of games and face painting for children.

Organiser Dene Ayres was rewarded for his efforts by winning a bottle of wine for guessing the correct weight of a cannon ball.

Organisers also thanked Brigadier Koe for allowing the Old Rectory to be used for the fete.

Simon Emary, treasurer of the recreation association, said: “It’s a fantastic event of which we as a village should be very proud.”

The event raised money for the upkeep of St Mary’s Church and in particular the installation of a drinking water supply and a small kitchen.
