New date for Southbourne Fete

A DATE has been set for the rescheduled annual Southbourne Fete which had to be called off in June because of heavy rain.

The event will now run on Saturday, September 8 from 12.30pm-4pm, at the Recreation Ground, in Park Road.

For children there will be several free events including Punch & Judy and a clown. In addition, the popular steam train will be there together with a bouncy castle and more children’s rides.

Throughout much of the afternoon there will be live music, and a variety of foods will also be available, including a hot dog stall and coffee, tea and cakes.

Elsewhere, there will be books, bric-a-brac, cakes and preserves and a number of gift stalls. Most are run by local charities and organisations, but there is an opportunity for stallholders to apply for a place on the field.
