(with a difference)

Lamenting the absence of the Fete to raise essential money for the church, a brilliant suggestion came out of the blue to hold it ‘virtually’. Inspired by local residents with a dab hand at technology and publicity, the community was invited on a Fete FB page to enter a Bake Off competition and Pet Show, to Guess the Number of Sweets in a Jar and, by making a donation, enjoy automatic entry into a draw to win a Barrow of Delights all supplied by villagers.

A socially distanced Plant Sale was held in the churchyard, 157 cream teas were delivered thanks to a great response from cake makers, homes were decorated in rainbow colours, teddies joined in too and the blue and rainbow coloured hearts knitted during lockdown in appreciation for all the heroes and key workers danced in the breeze in Littlebury Churchyard.

Thanks to the generosity of the community an unprecedented amount of just over £4,000 was raised to ensure the church stands firm in Littlebury where they look forward to restrictions lifting and being able to welcome you back.
