Henfield Church Fete – Saturday 29th June

The sun shone on the Vicarage Garden for St Peter’s Fete held on St Peter’s Day.

There were lots of stalls and competitions which were enjoyed by the many people who came along.

The bells in our Church Tower were recast and rehung 100 years ago.

To celebrate this centenary our theme for the Fete was “Bells”

At the Bell Meadow Belfry people could try their hand at bellringing.

And St Peter’s Handbell Ringers demonstrated a different kind of ringing.
