The Fete will be the first major fund raising event for the Cottingham and Middleton Community Hub – The Mill – which when built, will provide a vibrant, modern space for so many village, church and school activities. The school and church, as key contributors to the fete, will also benefit from the proceeds.

A big thank you to all the volunteers who are involved in planning and running the Fete, everyone who’s advertised in the Fete programme and donated raffle prizes.

We’re also counting on your support, so we hope to see you there!
