Winter 1987

Last month I said that Spring was here - well Summer has arrived with a bang this month. As I write this the temperature stands at 36°C, which, hopefully, is promising for the 69th Froyle Fête, Flower and Dog Show, which takes place on Saturday, July 11th.
This months picture recalls last year’s Fête, with the Dog Show entrants waiting to enter the arena. This month we have expanded the Home & Away, Fêtes, section to include all our Fêtes since, and including, 2001.
A big thank you to those who came to our last Open Day & Village Reunion on June 14th. The turnout wasn’t huge, but it was good to meet and chat with many old friends - some who travelled a long way to visit with us.
Although this was the last event of its kind, there will be future exhibitions for Local History Day in Alton and maybe, in a few years time, another book launch......
