Summer in the UK: the Summer Fete

There is nothing quite like a village fete!  Every year in the summer months in the UK, hundreds of villages put on their garden fetes.  In the case of our village the fete is held on 22 June in a beautiful local garden where the freshly mowed lawns are dotted with stalls selling second hand Bric-a-brac, books and jewellery: locally grown vegetables and plants and of course the chance to sit in the shade and have tea and cake or a cool glass of Pimms.  For the children, after an ice cream and a run about it is time to sit down and watch the Punch and Judy Show.  What better way to spend a sunny summer’s day.  See if you can recognise the special guests on the stage!  Mr Punch please put him down!
