The notorious bridge closure outside Eydon will not stop the village from celebrating at its annual fete this Sunday, September 2.

A flypast from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Hurricane is sure to be a highlight of the event at Eydon Community Field.

This very traditional ‘fete with something extra’ has gained an enviable reputation for great food over the years and this year will be no exception.

So let your taste buds run wild and sample morning coffee, delicious lunches, scrumptious tea and cakes galore, a well-stocked bar serving real ale and Eydon Cider, not to mention local ‘produce to go’ at the Made in Eydon tent, including home-made ice-cream.

There will be fun for all the family with traditional fete entertainments like a brass band and games for children of all ages, plus a spectacular collection of vintage and modern classic cars and a dog show, bric-a-brac, bottle and book stalls, grand draw and auction to boot!

The broken bridge between Eydon and Culworth will get a mention too as local singer ‘Stan the Man’ will be performing his protest song on the day.

The festivities start at midday and entry is free, but donations will raise money for the upkeep of village facilities.
