Update about the postponed 2020 Coldridge Fete

Coldridge Fete and Vintage Rally No-Date Logo


"The Fete Committee met recently via Zoom to discuss the possibility of going ahead with the postponed 2020 Coldridge Village Fete and Vintage Rally on 26th June 2021.

The Committee felt that there was too much uncertainty about whether all restrictions would be lifted by the end of June 2021, making it difficult to plan properly for a Fete this year. This was then reinforced by the announcement made by the Prime Minister on 22nd February 2021 about the lifting of lockdown rules in England. As a consequence, we have decided to cancel this year and look forward to putting all our energy into preparing for a fabulous Fete in 2022.

The date for the 2022 Coldridge Fete, Vintage Rally, Flower Festival and Dog Show is Saturday 2nd July 2022. Please keep the date free, more information will be available later in the year.

We are still hoping to put on a smaller Parish based event sometime this summer to mark the reopening of the Village Hall and giving us a chance to celebrate all our community-based activities. Further information will be available in due course.

Update about the 2021 Coldridge Fete

Coldridge Fete and Vintage Rally No-Date Logo

The Fete Committee met recently to discuss the possibility of going ahead with the postponed 2020 Coldridge Village Fete and Vintage Rally on 26th June 2021.

It was felt that because the situation with Covid 19 remains unclear it was best not to try to decide as yet, but to wait until February 2021 when the outlook for the pandemic may be clearer. We plan to make a definite decision whether to go ahead or cancel by the middle of March 2021 at the latest.

If we decide not to go ahead with the Fete until 2022, it may be possible to put on a smaller Parish based event on 26th June 2021 instead, which will give us the opportunity to get together as a Community, following whatever Covid 19 rules are in place at the time.

If anyone has any views about holding the Fete in either 2021 or 2022 and would like to share them, please speak to any member of the Committee:

Margaret Burrows

2020 Coldridge Fete Flower Festival Launch Meeting

Saturday 29th February 2020, 10:30am in the Village Hall

The time has come to begin thinking about the Flower Festival taking place in Church as part of the Coldridge Fete Celebrations on Saturday 27 June 2020. We need to get together to choose a theme and start planning our creations. If you would like to take part in the 2020 festival then please come along to the Village Hall on Saturday 29 February at 10.30 am for a brief meeting to decide this year's theme and also choose your preferred spot in church.

If you are new to this and would like to take part, we would be so glad to see you and are happy to offer any helpful tips needed. We are all amateurs and the fun of the Flower Festival is definitely in the doing as well as the viewing!! We’re hoping to get as many together as possible, however if you are interested but cannot make it you can register your interest by contacting 01363 83329.

Best wishes, Jo Dike and Ruth Kent
