A village fete is making a comeback after a 33-year absence and the man who organised the last one will officially open Little Gaddesden’s reborn event on Saturday, September 14.
Chess teacher Ken Dickson, who recently celebrated his 100th birthday, but still keeps active with swimming and pilates, will do the honours.
Entry to the fete, running from 11am to 4.30pm at Church Road, costs £2.
There will be fun for all the family with stalls, a dog show, laser clay shooting, pets corner, pony rides, bucking bronco, film making for children, a beer tent, crafts, a hog roast and music.
Proceeds will go to the Northchurch-based Hospice of St Francis and Hemel Hempstead teen respite charity Roar.
For a chance to bag a stay at a luxury Florida villa bid in the silence auction by calling Sarah Gall on 07717 068280. The auction will close at 3pm on fete day.
