 4. Fete update   
HC and FH have prepared budget based on 3 scenarios (worst case, average and best case) to try to ensure event covers its costs and raises some money for the church.  HC explained fete budget in detail including holding back 25% of the profit as a reserve for next year’s fete.  Fete has been scaled back slightly from original budget saving £1000 in expenditure. Success

Fete will start at 1pm with competition judging starting at 1.30pm.

Advertising is underway (Loddon Reach, Facebook, posters, banners, estate agent boards). Programme is being finalised.
