AN EVENT that promises to be a treat of a traditional church fete is taking place in Caversham this summer.

The public is being invited down to Caversham Church Fete on Saturday, July 13, from 1pm for an afternoon of fun and entertainment.

Set in the idyllic Thameside garden of Caversham Court on Church Road, people of all ages will have plenty to do.

Revellers will be welcomed at the Parish Fete by members of the three churches, St Margaret, St Peter and St John, offering you a wonderful afternoon exploring the many stalls of homemade cakes, plants, tombolas, books, bric-a-brac and more... or try your skills at traditional sideshows such as hoopla, hook-a-duck, coconut shy and beat the goalie.

And there will also be the opportunity to win some top prizes in the Grand Draw.

For music fans, Tadley Brass Band will be providing the soundtrack for the day. And for little ones, magician Mr Muddle will be providing entertainment.

Refreshments will be served in the form of delicious afternoon teas, ice creams and hot foods on the lawn all afternoon with a Pimm’s Tent by the river.

Heralded by the ringing of St. Peter’s Church bells, the Fete starts at 1pm.

Money raised will be going to support the three churches and their respective causes.
