HUNTINGTON village is once again preparing for its annual fete on Saturday, July 21.

Set in the beautiful gardens of Huntington Court, home to William and Fiona Shone, Huntington fete is one of the oldest in the county. Running at its current location since 1954, but tracing its roots as far back as the 13th century, the Huntington fete has become a highlight of the social calendar for this charming West Herefordshire village.

Its popularity is perhaps due to the fete's wonderfully old fashioned garden party style with many traditional stalls selling delightful homemade cakes, preserves, chutneys, and delicious teas alongside garden party games and competitions. Local folk band Bandamania will also be providing live music at this year's event.

The fete, which raises money for Huntington's two churches, village hall and other local charities, will be opened this year by Bronwen Bufton who has run the lucky dip stall at the event for over 40 years, a role previously performed by her mother-in-law since 1956.

The fete opens at 3pm, admission and parking is free.

There is also a community bus that leaves Kington for the event.
