St Mary’s Northchurch Church Fete: Saturday 6th July 2024 – we need your help!

Arrangements for our summer fete are well underway. We will have all the old favourites you are used to at the fete, including the Hemel Hempstead Band, the BBQ and the bottle stall. This year it will run from 12 noon to 3.30pm so please make a note of the date in your diaries now and encourage your family and friends to come along for a great family day out.


We would be grateful for your help collecting items for the fete, and with offers to help on the day.  Items we are looking for include:


  • Donations of bottles (all kinds – but in date and full please).  Please leave these in the rectory or give them to Karen Baldwin.

  • Tombola prizes/Gifts and Toiletries Stall items – new, good-quality items are needed for both the tombola and gift stall.  Please leave these in the relevant box in the South Transept.

  • Raffle prizes – if you have a good contact who might give us a raffle prize, please either let Margit know or better still, ask your contact yourself.

  • Children’s toys – we are looking for good quality and clean, unused or second-hand children’s toys, books, games and soft toys. Please either drop off in the box at church or in the rectory.

  • Good quality second-hand books. Please put these in the box at the back of the church.  If you have a lot and need help transporting them please contact Margit.

  • Plants and garden items - Please bring these along on the day. We can also arrange for plants/items to be collected in advance. Contact Vanessa Hudson at 879646 for further details.

  • Cakes – if you think you can help out by providing cakes for either the cake stall or the refreshments stall please can you let Penny Coase (penny.coase@btinternet.com) know?  We have new arrangements for dropping items off/ allergen labelling this year due to the need to comply with Natasha’s Law on allergen labeling and Penny will be able to provide labels. 

  • Lastly, please keep collecting your Woods vouchers and putting them in the box at the back of the church – we get a £25 gift voucher for every £100 of receipts.



Thank you for your help – we can make this a great fete with your help.  Please just catch any one of us at church if you want to talk about anything to do with the fete.


Margit, Rachel, Evelyn, Karen, Brian & Nick (The Fete Committee)
