Introducing the Everdon T towel 2016

After the success of the Everdon Jute bag we are introducing the Everdon T towel.

Made of unbleached high class cotton and once again using  a picture of the historic bridge in Everdon which has become the Fete Logo.

They will go on sale on fete day for £4. They are a limited edition and are likely to be very popular so preorders can be made by contacting everdonfete@gmail.com

Thank you to Lizzie Barwood for her hard working sourcing and designing them

Thank you to for our kind sponsors . Their sponsorship has meant that the production costs have been covered so all of the £4 goes to fete funds.

Introducing the Everdon Fete Bag

Breaking News! This year we are selling the Everdon Fete Bag. These are custom made Jute bags . We chose the old stone bridge as our  village Logo and we used adaptations of Amanda David and Pam Neville’s drawings of the bridge.    We are grateful for our Sponsors who have generously donated towards the production costs. We will sell them on fete day and they will be available at all stalls. The best part is they’re only £3 each!!

Thanks to Lizzie Barwood for the  great idea and for her hard work sourcing and designing the bag.
