The annual Lemsford Fete will be held at St John’s School and Church today – May Bank Holiday Monday.
For the first time, the traditional English fete will provide train rides for children.
Also on offer will be Maypole dancing, a coconut shy, a tea-cup ride and a Pimm’s tent.
Jazz band Bob Thomas and the Thomcats will be providing music.
The fete will run from noon to 4pm.
Headteacher Mandy Evans said: “This is an important event for St John’s School, the parish and the wider local community and we’re enormously grateful for all the support we receive.”
Money raised will be shared between the school, church and other good causes.
Entry is £1.50 for adults, £1 for senior citizens and it is free for children under 16.
