DESPITE the village only having a population of 40, thousands of visitors will be descending on Winwick’s Country Church Fete on Sunday.

This year’s fete incorporates a fun dog show and in addition to a huge range of stalls and activities, fete goers will be able to watch morris dancing, buy cakes, plants, preserves and produce and take tea whilst a band plays in front of the church.

The fete also provides visitors with a rare opportunity to visit the beautiful gardens of Winwick Manor.

With duck races along the brook, a barbecue and plenty of games for children, the Winwick Country Fete once again promises a perfect afternoon for all the family in glorious Northamptonshire countryside.

A family called Gurney, who lived in Winwick for many generations, are also using the fete to hold a family reunion. Members are coming from as far afield as Australia.

In 2009 the event attracted 2,500 visitors who got through over 1,700 teas.

The fun starts at 2pm with an official opening by Pete Cooper from BBC Radio Northampton.

Entrance for adults costs £2 while pensioners and children can get in for £1. Children under 12 get in free while toilets and car parking are also free.

All proceeds will go to Winwick church funds. Winwick is just off the A428 West Haddon Bypass.
