Thank You


I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported the Stanmore Village Fete today, despite the rain.  In particular I would like to thank the committee members who have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that today took place.

Over the next few days we will try and get out information about how much we raised for St John’s Church Bell Appeal and Bernays Gardens Community Group.  Please also look out for information about Raffle and Lucy Programme Numbers.

Stanmore Village Fête

Join us at our community event on Sunday 12 June from noon – 4.00pm on Church House Field, Old Church Lane, Stanmore HA7 2QX.

There will be craft stalls, food stalls, games, entertainment in association with Stanmore Stagecoach and our, now famous, dog show in association with Blythwood Vets.

The aim of the event is to bring the community together and celebrate all things positive about our neighbourhood, to have lots of fun and raise awareness for local projects.  This year we will also be celebrating the Queen’s 90th birthday, please come and join us in acknowledging this milestone in British History.

We are aiming to raise money for local causes including St John’s Church bells which have rung out across Stanmore for almost 400 years and are now in need of some urgent work.  We are also trying to raise money towards the creation of a raised sensory bed in Bernays Gardens.

To make this the best Stanmore Fete so far, we would love Members of our Community to get involved and invite you to take part in the organization of the Fete so that we can ensure that everything possible will be provided to make the day as memorable and enjoyable as possible.

If you’d like to be involved in our event and especially if you would like a stall do please contact us. Stalls are £25 including a table and chairs.
