Overton Village Fete – 29th June 2024

Overton’s annual village fete will take place on Saturday 29th June.   It will take the form of a Street Market in the morning with a Picnic on the Pitch in the afternoon. 

Street Market

Book your stall here!

The Street Market will be from 10am to 1pm.  Like in previous years, there will be stalls dotted around the village in the following locations:

  • Dark Lane (which will be closed to road traffic)
  • In the Church yard
  • On the grass verges by Church Road / School Lane

Most of the stalls will be in the Church Yard because there is so much space, and if we keep the stalls in a smaller area that means more footfall for everyone!

Stalls will be £10, with the proceeds going to St Mary’s school. We can take payment by cheque or bank transfer. Full details are on the booking form

If you need any more information please contact Charlotte by email or on 07960 538089

 

   

Picnic on the Pitch

We’re calling the whole event a Picnic on the Pitch and you can bring your own picnics but there will also be food and drink available as well if you don’t want to bring a picnic.  Our friends at Premium Bar Hire will be returning for another year, a hog roast will be supplied by Pen y Lan Pork with tea, coffee and delicious cakes brought to you from a horsebox by Meet Me In The Morning. No one will go hungry in Overton that Saturday afternoon!

Come along from 3pm and stay until you want to go home!

Like last year there will be a Fun Dog Show with prizes being provided by our friends at Country Hounds. The categories will be:

  • “Perkiest” Puppy  (3 months to 12 months)
  • Jolliest Juvenile (12m – 3 years)
  • Marvellous Middler (3 – 10 years)
  • Waggiest Tail 30 second count (All ages)
  • “Best Trick” (Sit / Stay / Paw shake) – All ages
  • “Serenest ” Senior 10 years +
  • Best Young Handler (Humans up to 16)
  • “Loveliest” Lady – Overall in show
  • “Handsomest” Boy – Overall in show
  • Naughtiest in show!

Registrations will open at 3pm 

This year there will also be the Overton Olympics. Basically this will be a team event and will be run like a decathlon, i.e. with different “disciplines” which each team takes part in and collects points for. The team with the most most points wins a prize.

We’re hoping that the various businesses and organisations in the village would like to ‘own’ a discipline, with the game or activity being associated with the business / organisation’s activities.

The businesses and organisations who have already signed up are Ma Baker, Ferdi’s, Overton Play Centre, St Mary’s School and M E Evans.  This is brilliant …. but there is room for LOTS more! Contact Charlotte to take part. It would also be helpful if you could provide a couple of volunteers to run your game as well.
