St George’s Anglican Church Annual Fete
02/03/2019 @ 8:30 am - 2:00 pmFree
The Annual Fete has been our major parish fund-raising event for more than 30 years. On the first Saturday of March, the Labour Day long weekend, Lions Park in the centre of Dunsborough is transformed into a Fete with lots of market stalls and entertainment.
The members of the congregation, organize and run about 15 Stalls, these are decked out in red and white, St George’s colours. It is an early morning rise with lots of activity to have everything ready for an 8.30am start. Undoubtedly, the Fete provides the best preserves stall in the South West and lots of homemade cakes, slices and biscuits available to purchase. The appetising smell of egg and bacon sandwiches reaches people’s noses as they trickle into the town centre for their weekend shopping. The sandwich comes along with a sausage in a bun or a Gourmet Burger, depending on one’s appetite. Healthy potted plants at bargain prices and more bargains at the Almost Antiques and Kitchen items. So many good reads await the avid reader at the book stall. Music by local artists keeps everyone entertained. There is also a chance to win a prize from the ‘wheel of change’, the bottle stall and Raffle.
Children enjoy the bouncy castle, have their face painted or try out the other children activities.
Funds raised on the day are shared between the Emergency Relief Programme at St George’s, School Chaplaincy work and other mission initiatives in this country and overseas
