Compton Village Fete
Saturday 20th May
The Compton fete is the result of a
collaborative effort between The Village
Association and the villagers, A thoroughly
enjoyable day is had by all, come rain or shine.
In 2005 a total profit of £6,332 was made,
donations from which, went to, Compo, The
Allotments Society, The Compton News,
and the Village Hall.
2006 saw less favourable weather conditions.
Proving that us 'Surrey Dwellers' are made of
stern stuff, many turned out for the event
and £4,511 was raised...the 2nd highest ever
Plants & produce did particularly well this year
and the furthest balloon was found in
Frankfurt! Some of the gazebos also took flight hopefully not as far as Franfurt though.
Yet again Jane Turner sold the most grand
draw tickets. Full details of prizes and monies raised can be found in the Compton News.

Books & Videos & CD's ~ Bric-a-Brac ~ Teas & IceCream ~ Plants ~ Tombola ~ Barbecue ~ Cakes ~ Hoop-La ~ Trailer Rides ~ Pimms Tent ~ Bits & Pieces ~ Kitchen & Bathroom ~ Bouncy Castle ~ Notelets ~ Pick-a-Card ~ Fun Fair ~ Coconut Shy ~ Football ~ Finding Neverland ~ Balloon Race
