A traditional village fete took place at St Mary’s Church on Saturday, September 3.

The event featuring stalls, a raffle, games such as splat the rat, a tombola, morris dancers, and a Pimms tent, raised an impressive £1,357 for good causes, far exceeding the initial goal of £450.

Raffle prizes were donated by local shops in Ross town centre.

Stalls included local crafts, crochet, hand-made jewellery, and a face painter.

Organiser Laura Pugh told the Gazette: “It couldn’t have gone better.”

The funds raised will be split between Herefordshire Mind, local Samaritans, and local girl Sarah Williams who’s hoping to upgrade her wheelchair.
