What a great day at Barrowden with the fund raising for St Peter’s. The Fete had everything, with superb weather, loads of visitors and villagers, vintage cars, a wide of range of stalls manned by willing volunteers, excellent fellowship, a Spitfire fly past, a closely contested Duck race and all finished off by the Barrowden Bop in the evening expertly provided by Tom and Joanne from the Exeter Arms.
Thanks to Clive Holland and all his team for the organisation of the event.
