Takeley Park Fete

Posted by admin

Over the past few months the Takeley Park Residents Association have been working in close partnership with Turners Parks Group to raise money for local charities throughout a variety of events. These have included a quiz, bingo and race nights.

On July 25th the first joint summer fete to raise money for St Clare Hospice in Harlow was held. The day started with two gazebos blown away in the early hours of Saturday morning. However the sun came out, the rain and wind moved away and by 1pm the fete was ready to rock. St Clare must have been looking down on us.

Over two hundred residents, family and friends enjoyed the fete. There was lots of fun and laughter on everyone’s faces as they enjoyed games and excellent food. Attendees were also able to buy items at bargain prices.

Takeley Park has a great community and so many people gave hours of their time to make the fete such a success. Over £1500 was raised in just three hours for St Clare Hospice.

This has really shown what can be achieved as a community in partnership with the Park Managers.
