Manston Church Fete

Another 'Great British Fete' held in the grounds of Manston House, near Sturminster Newton, Dorset. A traditional fete with the usual mix of stalls and sideshows together with interesting games and pastimes.

Cake - what cake? Perhaps he will give me a bit if I look the other way!

Throughout the afternoon music was provided by the Shaftesbury Town Band and the Blandford Gymnastics Club put on a great show. 

Tea, cakes and ice creams were available on the lawns and the afternoon was nicely rounded off with a walk through the sunny walled garden.

I could not resist this shot.  I wonder  what they were thinking?


  1. This is just beautiful! Thank you for sharing. I have never traveled to this part of the world although I would love to. Thank you for the visit to my blog:) I love childrens books and I wish I can review more. My youngest is now 10 so I do not get to read them to my children like I used to and miss that.Your blog is lovely and you are doing a great job with it. I am now your follower. Wishing you lots of luck!

    Really pleased you like the post, thank you for taking the time to comment and follow. It is sad when your children don't want to listen to stories anymore - but it's wonderful when/if grandchildren come along because then you get to do it all again. We are blessed with three wonderful grandchildren, two grown up grandsons and a brand new baby granddaughter.


I really appreciate your comment. Thank you!
