Doynton Fete:

As he hangs up his fête supremo boots – or should that be wanged wellies? – the volunteers on the fête committee send special thanks to Andrew Read, who has chaired the committee for nine years and is now stepping down. This year the fête raised £4,538.32, and during Andrew’s tenure it has raised nearly £34,000, providing much-needed funds for village causes such as the Church, the recreation ground and Summer’s Field community orchard, and also for local, national and international charities from PAWS-GIST to the DEC Ukraine appeal. Andrew was brave enough to take on the role of Chair in his very first year on the committee and while he was still working full-time. It was obviously a case of asking a busy person if you want something doing, but now he is heading for a well-deserved rest, at least till all the questions about logistics come in! He was kind enough to say how much he has enjoyed the camaraderie of fête planning and will still be in the village to be a fount of knowledge and contact details for anyone taking over the reins. Planning for the next fête, to be held on Saturday June 8th 2024, should begin in January with a few light admin tasks and then ramp up from April, so look out for committee recruitment messages around Christmas and New Year.

Doynton Market:

I write this just fresh home from the November 18th market, and what a market it was! Since our last missive, the customers have returned, plus more, so a big thank-you to all who are reading this and have joined us, you help make the market buzz. Also, we hosted the Wick Brownie group, and they always bring an extra energy to the hall, so many thanks to Jess and rest of the leaders plus all the Brownies who came along to help on their stall. This year they are raising funds to try and help buy/save the Foxlease estate down in Hampshire, a centre for Girlguiding UK. They will be with us again on our December 23rd market, so please pop in and support them. Hopefully, this magazine reaches you early enough in December to remind you that for this month, the markets are on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays (December 9th and 23rd), with January 2024 back to the normal 1st and 3rd Saturdays (January 6th and 20th). You may still have time to order your Christmas meat (to be delivered on December 23rd), and any other goodies we have to offer, please phone 937 3168 to order. Lastly, all of us at the market would like to wish you a very merry Christmas and happy 2024!
