West Dorset: Tea tent proves popular at Loders fete
10:50am Friday 10th August 2012 in Bridport
Lord and Lady Hood hosted the successful annual fete at Loders Court.
Organiser Jessie Barrett said although numbers were down, due to the Olympics, the takings were still more than £6,200 with the tea tent making £800.
She said: “All the hard work was worth it. It was a very enjoyable afternoon.”
Despite the prize for the fancy dress winners being £10, there were only seven or eight entries but what they lacked in numbers they made up for in enthusiasm.
The winners were: l Under sevens: Bill and Ben and Little Weed, cousins Ryan Overton, Jade Bull and Hannah Bull l Over sevens: Scarecrow Rosie Howell.
One great attraction was an old Model T Ford, once used in French vineyards and brought along by Roly Moores.
Mrs Barrett added: “We would like to say thank you for all the support given to us by local businesses.”
