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 firstname.lastname@example.org

Peter Wilson MBE
West Acre Parish Councillors are deeply saddened by the news that our former colleague Peter has died.
As we got to know Peter through his time on the Parish Council we could see that his gentle manner and insightful perspective were always aimed at focusing on positive ways to understand the point of view of others.
We have read over the past few days about the many impressive achievements Peter accumulated though his rich life and which affected the world and those around him so positively - he is clearly going to be missed by all who knew him.
Peter mixed with stars of stage and screen and he put on productions in some of the world's major cities, but he was just the same, however, with people in Sandy Lane, West Acre as on Broadway, New York.
West Acre Parish Councillors extend their sincere condolences and deepest sympathy to Peter's family and loved ones.
