HUNTINGTON village is holding it's 65th fete on Saturday, July 20.

Set in the gardens of Huntington Court, home to William and Fiona Shone, the Huntington fete is one of the oldest in the county.

The fete remains popular with locals and visitors, retaining a traditional style with time-honoured favourites that include home made cakes and produce stalls, old fashioned garden party games, competitions and delicious home made teas.

The local Springfield Swing Band will provide the live music this year.

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

Retired local doctor Phillip Cleland who has lived in the village for nearly 50 years will open the fete. Phillip, an authority on small breed farming and a past president of the Longhorn Cattle Society, was a doctor in Kington for over 30 years.

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

There is also a community bus that leaves Kington for the event (2.30pm from Mill Street).
