Reviews from 2016 Fete Performances

Letter of Thanks from Englefield Flower Show 

I attach a letter of sincere thanks to you and the orchestra for the huge contribution you made to the success of our flower show - yet again!.
We are truly grateful that you were able to assemble the orchestra at a time of summer holidays for many and we thoroughly enjoyed a superb and highly approriate programme of toe tapping music.

Thank you and all your wind orchestra members so much for playing again at the Englefield Flower Show this year. The orchestra makes an enormous contribution to the event and you create a wonderful atmosphere for everyone to enjoy.

It has become a tradition that we seem to have incredible luck with the weather and this year was even more remarkable given the miserable May and June.  The wet spring and cloudy early summer could be one reason for the relatively low number of entries we had for the show categories, with the exception of the children’s classes. The committee is looking for fresh solutions to the problem in good time for the 2017 show.

 Never the less attendance on the day was again good and our treasurer says that the receipts on most of the stalls were up compared to last year which will all help to produce next year's show.  Certainly the atmosphere in the glorious sunshine with the orchestra playing and the crowd strolling around had all the hallmarks of a classic village fayre and everyone seemed to have a good time.

So many thanks for all you do for us and I hope you will be available to play again next year.  Please do let me have any comments or improvements you think we could make and I will pass them on.

All Best wishes,
