The Eco friendly Tea Tent served more than 500 teas and homemade cakes, the Pimm’s and Real Ale tent run by Felpham Sailing Club was thronged throughout the day , and the BBQ run by Bognor Rotary served 288 burgers and 198 hot dogs.

“The day was again been supported by over 50 local businesses giving amazing raffle or tombola prizes, sponsoring an activity or supporting with helpers and games. There were plenty of stalls this year from local businesses, clubs and organisations. The Felpham Village Fete is a real village affair bringing the whole community together.
