Colston Wimbledon Fete a Great Success! Saturday July 11th 2015

A fun packed afternoon, attended by members and non members, saw the first ever Colston Wimbledon Fete launch on Saturday.

With our friends at Flint & Lambourne Marquees providing a perfect setting, with two magnificent red and white tents on the old grass courts, we were set for an afternoon of fun.

The egg throwing stall was quick to gather an enthusiastic audience as participants battled to throw and catch eggs as far apart as they could. The result was one particular child (the editors son!) ending up literally with egg on his face (well his head!!)

 

The fastest serve drew in some enthusiastic participants eager to show off their skillsĀ and attendees were fed and watered via a BBQ and bar.

To further add to the atmosphere Rod Bridge and Gareth Tridgell played and sung through the afternoon and, as the sun shone, a steady stream of visitors graced the Colston grounds.IMG_0945IMG_0946

Ben Morley, using his usual ingenuity, managed to pipe the Wimbledon Ladies Final into the club house with a core group settling in with their strawberries and cream and a glass of Pimms!

All in all a fun day and, one hopes, the start of an annual event.

 

Thanks to all who helped.
