Fete Season 2017

Another successful round of summer fetes. The weather was lovely for all of them. Beenham villagers joined us on the Rec for an evening of music, picnics, beer from The Six Bells and a great barbecue. We played for the members of Phyllis Court Club at Henley Regatta and for the lovely Englefield School and village and finally for Padworth, who provided us with an amazing purple gazebo. Looking forward to playing at Whitchurch-on-Thames Fete on September 2nd.
