The Coln St Aldwyns Children’s Fete & CHEQS Produce Show is now confirmed for Saturday 31 August and once again, by kind permission of Earl St Aldwyn, it will be held in the beautiful grounds of The Mill House, beginning with a BBQ lunch at 12.30pm and running through the afternoon with lots of children’s games and entertainment, live music from Josie & The Outlaws, stalls, afternoon teas, and a Pimm’s bar.

The children’s activities are FREE as our twin aims are to make it a fabulous fun day out for children and their families and to raise lots of money for local children’s charities.

Last year’s fete made a record profit of more than £8,000 which we’ve spent on everything from Chrome Books for Hatherop Primary to new programmes at Quenington Brownies.

A full list of the many local organisations we have supported – and how to apply for a grant – is on our website That’s the place, too, to stay up to date with fete news.

If you want to help on the day or if you’ve got books, gifts or nearly new clothes for our stalls then please email us at
