Church Summer Fete


This year (2022) the Summer Fete is back to normal and will take place on 9th July on the Village Green.

Every summer Sydling holds its church fete. Always a brilliant day (weather permitting!) attracting both residents and visitors from outside the village.

After a 2 year gap, because of COVID, the fete will be back on Saturday 9th July 2:00-5:00pm on the Village Green.

Arena events such as a Dancing Demonstration by The Studio, Dorchester and a Family Dog Show are surrounded by a variety of activities such as Skittles, Coconut Shy, Tombola and other games and a variety of stalls including Plant & Produce, White Elephant, Cakes, Books, Girl’s Accessories and outside Handicraft Stalls.

There is a Childrens’ Area with a Bouncy Castle, Face Painting & Name the Lambs.

Everything is wonderfully catered for with Ice Creams and the Tea and Cakes and Beer marquees.

As usual there will be a Grand Prize Draw:    an MOT test at Long Ash Service Station, a £50 meal voucher at The Greyhound Inn, and a £25 meat voucher at Clarks of Grimstone, along with a selection from Cerne Abbas Brewery, a Copper Street Brewery Gift Set, a Luxury Gift Set from Annings of Dorset, a Celebration Cake and many other prizes.


It takes a lot of hard work by villagers to organise such a varied event, but it’s always well worth the effort.
