The Village fete at Sherborne St John was raising funds for a new village hall.
"With Lottery Funds increasingly hard to come by, the Village will need to work hard to raise the funds itself; I was pleased to hear that Basingstoke and Deane Council may also be able to help. Marion Welton and her team have certainly put on a great show on one of the finest Saturdays of the year."
"It was good to see the local broadband campaign hard at work at the fete, getting more signatures so the local exchange can be enabled for broadband. With nearly 200 signatures, I hope they don't have too far to go."
"I was delighted to hear that the magnificent sum of £4,360 was raised towards the village hall building fund".
