VILLAGERS are gearing up for their annual fete.
It happens on the field at the top of Town Head, Alton, next to St Peters School, on Saturday, June 14.
This year's event will be opened at 2pm by Andrew Heath, Commercial Director of Alton Towers.
Now in its 14th year, this traditional village fete will feature all the usual attractions and stalls and some new ones.
Unfortunately, due to insurance restrictions, Eddie's pony and trap rides will not be available this year.
There are prizes on offer for the best made plate display with a theme of 'A Wartime Garden'.
Schoolchildren are welcome to enter and can bring their entries along to the marquee until 2.30pm on the day.
There will be a knockout skittles competition and other games including hoopla and the ever popular 'splat the rat'.
The annual tug o' war will take place with reluctant heavies from the audience showing their prowess.
There will be performances in the arena during the afternoon by the drummers and singers of the Cheadle Academy and St Peter's School,
The proceeds of the fete are the major source of income for St Peter's Church in Alton and St Leonard's in Bradley.
In the evening there is a hog roast. The entertainment will be provided by the popular group Acoustic Union.
On Sunday, June 15, at 6pm, there is a 'Songs of Praise' in the marquee where the collection will once again be donated to Moorlands Home Link.
