West Acre Village Fete 2023
The grounds of Abbey House make a spectacular backdrop for the annual West Acre Fete. Add in the extra bonus of a glorious summer day and you are guaranteed a good day out at a traditional British village event.
This year the West Acre Community Trust (which runs the village hall) decided to donate the proceeds from the event to the deserving Swaffham and Litcham Home Hospice Support.
The crowds flocked in, spending generously in support of the chosen charity.
This event could not have happened without the hard work of a large group of volunteers, including some younger members of the community. The organising committee would like to thank them all for making the event a great success.
A few days later the organising committee handed a cheque for £3,020 to Mavis White, representing the S&L Home Hospice Support charity.
The organising committee deserves special mention. Enthusiastic and energetic, they are the brains behind what the public sees. If you would like to join them to help with preparations for the bonfire event then please contact Ralph at email@example.com

Halloween and Bonfire Party
On Saturday 28 October the West Acre Community Trust held its annual Halloween and Bonfire event. Rain was forecast for the evening, but fortunately held off until the end of the firework display, allowing the visitors to fully enjoy the sights and sounds of a traditional display.
The event was made possible by the sterling work done by the usual cast of volunteers - Ann, Clair, Eileen, Ernest, Fiona, John 'Boy', Neil, Pat, Richard, Sheila, and Terry - who not only made all the arrangements, but also served up a tasty selection of treats (smacking of lips!) for all to enjoy.
