ONE of the county's longest-running fete's is gearing up for its 65th year.

Held in the gardens of Huntington Court, home to William and Fiona Shone, the traditional summer fete will feature time-honoured favourites including home-made cakes and teas, and produce stalls.

There will be old fashioned garden party games and competitions, while live music will be provided by the local Springfield Swing band.

The Fete raises money for Huntington’s two churches, village hall and local charities including this year’s nominated charity The Cart Shed.

It will be opened by retired Kington doctor, Phillip Cleland, who has lived in the village for nearly 50 years.

Huntington fete opens at 3pm on Saturday July 20. Admission and parking is free, and a community bus will be available from Mill Street, Kington at 2.30pm.
