On Saturday August 10th 2019 West Harptree village hosted it's first summer fete; West Fest 2019, supported by Gigaclear Broadband.


The organisers were not beaten by the challenging weather conditions and the stalls and activities were moved to the Memorial hall and the Crown Inn.


The proceeding were opened by Pete Budd from the Wurzels. The local police judged the children's fancy dress competition and Jacob Rees-Mogg, MP for North East Somerset, had the privilege of calling out all the names of the lucky winners of some fantastic raffle prizes.


The event was very well attended and all things considered was a very successful day. There were many stalls from a traditional coconut shy and hook a duck, sweets, cakes and candy floss on sale. There was a lovely indoor space at the hall for children's arts and crafts, all put together by the fantastic Cotton & Canvas events.


The fete ran alongside a real ale & cider festival hosted by the Crown Inn in West Harptree which was also a great success.


 Even with the poor weather an impressive £1240 was raised . Any villagers who would like to organise similar events please get in touch with the Memorial Hall Committee who would be happy to support you.
