This is our first fête so we don’t know how many exhibits to expect. Once you’ve decided to take part please e-mail the organisers (even weeks ahead) and let them know your name and which classesyou are entering (for example: Betty Marshall – A.3 & C.1).
Feel free to do this right up to the evening of Friday 14th June.
Even at the last minute you can join in –
just make sure you get your exhibits to the Exhibition Marquee between 8.30am and 9.30am latest on Saturday 15th June. No exhibits will be accepted for judging after 9.30am. Exhibits are to be left in the Exhibition Marquee until 4.00pm so they can be enjoyed by everyone.
And don’t worry if you forget or see this late on Friday night
– just come along with your exhibit by 9.30am latest. More the merrier!
