Shevington village fete promises to be bigger and better than ever!

Shevington Fete Sue Johnston

A village fete which has grown over the past few years promises to offer its biggest and best event in 2018! People in the local community of Shevington, Wigan, were disappointed in 2016 because the annnual Fete could not run due to lack of volunteers. Late last year, the committee saw an influx of willing volunteers and it was decided to hold the event on Saturday 30th June.

The whole community are invited to attend, whether as visitors or stallholders. The stalls don’t just offer locally, handmade crafts, goods and food but also include information stalls with representatives from local and nationwide charities and organisations including Northern Greyhound Rescue, the local branches of Women’s Institute, Butterflies Children’s Charity and The Samaritans of Wigan.

Drawing food lovers from far and wide with its mix of artisan food stalls, talks, live cookery demonstrations, interactive cookery classes and family fun it is fast becoming a red letter day in the ‘foodie calendar’. Staffordshire’s biggest gastronomic gathering will mark its 12th year on the weekend of Friday 30th September, Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd October this year.

With over 15,000 visitors flocking to the main Festival site at Westbridge Park, on the edge of the North Staffordshire market town of Stone, in 2015 this year’s event is expected to be even bigger.
