Notley Green Community Association - Village Fete 2017

Bumper crowds, including a visit from Braintree MP James Cleverly, turned out on Saturday 15 July for our Village Fete & Companion Dog Show..

Now that we have had time to recover and reflect on the day, we hope that everyone who attended enjoyed themselves. Thank you for the messages of appreciation, it certainly helps to make all the stress and worry worthwhile.

The unauditted amount raised for the day is approximately 4,000. We shall announce the final total amount raised from the day and how the money is allocated in due course.

The event was organised by the Notley Green Community Association (NGCA) principally by the two main organisers Nicky and Neil Parkinson.
