This year’s special offers are: World War II vehicles, a Fire Engine, the local Vintage Tractor Club, and of course our Fun Dog Show.

There are 12 classes in the dog show:

  1. The Prettiest Bitch
  2. Handsomest Dog
  3. Best Crossbreed
  4. Golden Oldie over 7 years
  5. Waggiest tail
  6. Snip & Stitch neutered/spayed
  7. Under 15 inches
  8. Over 15 inches
  9. One coloured coat
  10. Particoloured coat
  11. Scruffiest dog
  12. Smartest dog

As usual owners will pay £1 per class entry and can enter as many as they qualify for, rosettes given to 4th place.

We also have “the old favourites”

  • Tombola – where tickets ending with ‘5’ or ‘0’ win prizes.
  • Name the Teddy
  • Number of Sweets in the jar
  • Delicious homemade cakes!
  • Plant sale
  • Panning 4 Gold – always great fun and messy. There’s a coin in every cup of sand- but how much?
  • Face painting for the little ones.
  • Bouncy Castle

Of course a fête wouldn’t be complete without Ice Cream, and when that’s all done how’s about a cup of tea and cake while you watch the dog show.

We also run a raffle: prizes include tickets to Thrigby Hall Wildlife & Gardens, Broads Tours boat trips, bottle of drink, fruit basket etc.

Parking is on the field – entrance is 50p PER PERSON of 16 years and OVER.

On Saturday (10th) we shall erect the ring and mark off parking areas etc. The time for starting this will be arranged at the special meeting Tunstead Village Fête Volunteers to be held on Tuesday 30th May at 7:30pm in the village hall.

New volunteers are very welcome to attend this meeting, or turn up to help prepare for the Fête.
