Due to Covid restrictions this year (2021) the traditional fete has been much reduced. The White Elephant, Girls Accessories and Book stalls only will setup outside the village hall (or inside if bad weather) on 21st August between 10.00 – 12.00. Refreshments will be available.
Every summer Sydling holds its church fete. Always a brilliant day (weather permitting!) attracting both residents and visitors from outside the village.
Arena events such as Dog Show, Fling the Welly, Face Painting and Vintage Tractor Parade are surrounded by a variety of stalls including Plants, Tombola, Cakes, Girls Accessories, Coconut Shy, Skittles, Book and White Elephant stalls to name but a few. There is a Childrens’ Area with a Bouncy Castle, Face Painting and Greasy Pole pillow fighting. Everything is wonderfully catered for by the Tea and Cakes and Beer marquees.
It takes a lot of hard work by villagers to organise such a varied event, but it’s always well worth the effort.
