I strongly urge you to get out and go to a village fete. I went to our local fete: Glynde & Beddingham this weekend and despite the downpour half way through I absolutely loved it, particularly the produce tent, I wish I'd taken more photos. But I couldn't believe it when I saw that no one entered the Handicrafts section! All they needed was a knitted piece with a pattern!
Guess what, I'm definitely entering next year.
