Fete to pay for instruments

Organisers of a village fete are hoping to top last year’s £3,600 fundraising total.

The Cottingham and Middleton fete takes place on Saturday, July 5, at Cottingham CE Primary School. There will be a beer tent, tea room, barbecue, bouncy castle, miniature train rides, a pets cuddle corner and a “made in the village” stall selling locally crafted gifts. The school will use the money raised at the event to buy musical instruments, starting with guitars, and the church will use the funds to repair a path.
