The LoveLea Village Fete, which was enjoyed by people from all around Ross-on-Wye, took place on a wonderfully sunny day. Starting with live music by Duncan McCorkindale and the Recycled Outfit Themed Fancy Dress, judged by Cllr William Wilding, the day was off to great start.

With a team of volunteers from the PTFA, old friends, Lea Village Association (LRA), nearby villages and all the teachers and teaching assistants, the day ran without a hitch: facepainting; slime making; skittles and of course traditional stalls like hook a duck and tombola, local craft traders, plus infamous tea tent (ran by the LRA) and Grand Raffle, with a holiday as the top prize.

Fantastic displays from trail bikes riding over cars, school and village choir joined to sing a medley of ‘Joseph’ songs, Morris Dancers, Rare Breed Animals, medieval workshop, Lea’s Local Artists Art Exhibition in the village alongside the school children’s art displays and even a paper airplane competition!All of the hard work goes towards supporting and raising funds for the community.See the full story in this week’s edition of the Ross Gazette, or subscribe to our online edition here
