Thank You - Dunchurch Fete 2016
The Dunchurch Fete went spectacularly well this year and fortunately the sun shone for us once again.
So thank you to everyone who came, dressed up, attended with stalls, worked hard and donated to the good causes in and around Dunchurch.
Some photos of the day are trickling in and you can see them at our Gallery.
Keep coming back as new photos are added as they arrive here.
The winner of this year's Grand Raffle 1st Prize was Grant Smith seen here accepting his prize from the Dunchurch Festival Group Chairman, Rob Colings.
Particular thanks go to all those who worked so tirelessly on the Dunchurch Festival Group to make the fete happen.
Thanks you too to the generous businesses of Dunchurch who donated to the prizes of the Dunchurch Grand Raffle.

The Dunchurch Festival Group not only organizes the Village Fête but also a number of other events throughout the year; so why not look at our Events section, or use the links on the left of this page.
Funds raised from these events are fed back into the community. If you would like to help out, generally get involved or request funding please contact us.
Over the last 10 years through the fete and other events we have donated over £60,000 to local good causes.
- Last year's fete raised £4,830 - Not bad for a rainy day!
Thank you to everyone who contributed by helping out, attending and so helping to raise this money for local causes!
If you are an organization in Dunchurch you could qualify for funding, just tell us about the project you want the grant to go towards and we will consider making a donation towards it. Applications for funding from the Dunchurch Festival Group must be made by the end of September.

Pantomaniacs - making a difference
When Dennis Gall's riser chair was showing distinct signs of age it was timely that old friends from the Dunchurch Pantomaniacs made an approach to wife Pam, herself an ever-present in the 28 years of Pantos staged by the group, to see if there was any way they could help. Dennis has faithfully attended all the shows to keep an eye on Pam's performances , in which she is almost invariably teamed up with sister Rose, singing, dancing and generally fooling around.
Pam and Dennis are immensely grateful to the Pantomaniacs for their kindness in funding the chair which will help Dennis to be comfortable and able to transfer from wheelchair to riser and vice versa so much more easily. Out photo shows Dennis seated in his new char with Pam looking on.
Thank you to all Pantomaniac audiences and supporters for enabling us to help.
