Finding the Fete

Parking

Parking at the MRA is just for stall-holders and Bowls Club. Instead we’ve been given the use of part of the next-door field for parking (thank you Mr Harrison). You can also park at the Church Rooms and outside the Church.

Stall Holders

Stall holders can set up anytime after 8.30 am.
