Hazlemere Fete 2019 round-up
Peter Jemmett, 9 September 2019 14:41
As in previous years my grateful thanks go to Shafique, Louise, Justin and every-one who helped or supported us at this year’s Hazlemere Fete on a very hot August bank holiday Monday,.
Even though it was an exceptionally hot day, this probably worked against us as there didn't seem to be the same demand for hot food. There was also a boycott by some due to the dog show going ahead which may have also affected our sales and it was noted by the organisers there seemed less children. We had bought an extra 100 servings in anticipation of a record day, in the end we had some meat left over even after reducing our prices and selling at £1.00 per serving.
Besides those already listed a massive thank-you also go to: Frank Milligan, Paul McDonald & Lisa Green who helped out on the BBQ and extra big thank-you to Reda Semmah, Rafi Zapadka and Khalid Machmoum keeping the beat the keeper alive.
Although a gallant effort was made by all to try to set a club record breaking fund raising effort, we fell short because of the reasons given above – but this still represents a fantastic achievement with a total event profit of a majestic £868.57
