Winnersh summer fete


I attended the Winnersh summer event yesterday and made two civic awards on behalf of the Parish Council, as well as thanking the organisers and volunteers who had worked hard to provide the food, drink and entertainment.

Mrs Sally Whittaker was recognised for the work she does to help families through Home Start Wokingham. Mrs Liz Walker received an award for more than 10 years as a Guide leader.

There was a good showing by local charities, playgroups and sports clubs. In the main arena the public was entertained by a variety of performers from Morris dancers to agile dogs. You could try your own skill at putting a golf ball or shooting with a football. For the younger ones there were various toy ducks to be hooked out of water, and plenty of tombolas for all ages.

Well done to Winnersh for a good summer event, which was all the better for the sunshine.
