The Mayor of Test Valley, Cllr Neville Whiteley, opened Grateley Primary School Fete, which was raising money for equipment for the new hall. "The school has just heard that the County will fund a new hall, which will free up classroom soace and is excellent news."
"The PTA coped well with the rain by having a large number of tents and marquees, and the Wyvern Dance Band gave the event some atmosphere.For a small village school, there were a splendid range of attractions and plenty of people supporting the fete."
All Hallows Church Whitchurch held its usual summer fete at the home of Professor Robert Denning, and Sir George launched the duck race on the stream that runs past the end of the lawn. The Fete featured a Karate display, china-smasking, Test your Strength and a barbecue
