The Cefn Village Fete will be held this year at the Neuadd Owen Village Hall and field on June 24 For the second year St Mary’s Church will join with All Saints church Sinan to organise this year’s event. After a successful event last year the organisers are promising an even “bigger and better” one this year. It will start at 1.00 pm and go on until 11.00 pm. You can come and go at will throughout the day because there is no charge to enter the field (car park). The extended hours over previous years is needed to accommodate all the additional attractions and activities.
The traditional fete, which one visitor to the area described as “…….just like fetes used to be……” will in addition to the usual features, include this year, the Beulah Brass band, rides for children around the field on a tractor trailer, an opportunity to visit Cefn Caves, which are normally closed to the public and starting at 6.00 pm a Hog Roast with entertainment by the Take 3 Jazz Band. A pop up bar will be open from 4.00 pm until 11.00 pm. Tickets will be required for this event, price £10, and as there are a limited number available it is advisable to order early, details on website.
That is not all, in addition there will be a display of vintage cars and tractors and an opportunity to compare the size and capability of a large modern tractor with a vintage Massey Ferguson, There will also be one of the latest Eddie Stobart’s trucks and an opportunity to win a ride in it, To add to this list there will be a Cake stall stocked with home-made cakes which people have been known to travel miles to buy; Prize Draw with a 1st prize of £100; BBQ; Book stall and Refreshments,
