Following the cancellation of the 2020 VE75 Summer Fete, due to COVID-19, the Council hoped to be able to hold a Summer Fete in 2021, but unfortunately this was not possible in line with the Government's Roadmap to Recovery and other events scheduled later in the summer.
The dates for 2022, which will be the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, are already in the diary (2-5 June 2022) and consideration is being given to making 2022 a bigger and better Summer Fete than ever!
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the VE75 Party and Fete was cancelled.
Instead, the community held a series of Stay at Home Street Parties, which brought the neighbours 'together' (appropriately socially distanced, of course) and helped enormously in these challenging times.
Images were captured in an article in The Leek Wootton Link:
Hopefully 2021 will bring an opportunity for the community to hold a proper Parish Summer Fete, as it will be the centenary of the Leek Wootton War Memorial Recreation Ground.
In 2020 the LW&GC Parish Summer Fête will take place on Friday, 8 May (bank holiday), to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day, along with the rest of the country.
In addition to the usual fête, there will be a children's tea party at 2:30pm, commemorative moments and other events taking place in the community later in the weekend.
