Gipsy Hill Village Fete – Thank You!

The Friends of Gipsy Hill were overwhelmed with the support and local community feedback from the first Gipsy Hill Village Fete on Sunday 14th July on Long Meadow. There were lots of exciting activities including live music with the fabulous Panash Steel Band Orchestra, Palace Acappella and Rob Dugdale, dog show, games, tree trail, wild bird display (from Falconry UK) competitions and the family marquee for painting and “it’s a growing thing” for planting for all ages!
