A major new event in a village is promising to be full of family fun attractions and activities.

Bradwell Community Fete takes place on Saturday, June 10 at the Green Lane Playing Fields and will feature a host of different organisations and entertainment.

It features more than thirty different attractions and organisers say it is probably the biggest event to take place in the village in recent years.

The fete will feature attractions along with community groups, craft stalls and local businesses.

There will also be a packed entertainment programme taking place in the main arena.

The Bradwell Community Fete is the brainchild of an organising committee of fifteen residents and aims to replace previous smaller events with something that will appeal to the whole community.

The committee is co-chaired by local businessman David Fowler and the Rev Matthew Price, Curate of St Nicholas Church.

Mr Price said: 'St Nicholas Church are delighted to be leading the way in organising the fete, but the vision behind it is that it is a fete that is both for and represents the whole of our community.

'We want it to be an afternoon that celebrates all that is great about Bradwell and provides a fun and low-cost afternoon for the whole community.

'We'd particularly like to thank the parish council for permission to use the Green Lane Playing Fields.'
